UD at Home

Why Sea Stars?


Sea stars represent the UD message that we are all the same inside for two very good reasons. 1) Children know that a sea star remakes itself when it loses a limb. This reminds us of people’s resiliency to find new and different ways of solving a challenge. 2) Sea stars come in a variety of striking colors and sizes, yet just like people they are all the same inside.

The sea stars in our logo are physically different from each other. Though they have differences, they are all doing the important work of representing our UD message.

Do you see the curvy line in our logo? It emphasizes the word “abilities” within the word “disabilities.” UD emphasizes all that people with disabilities can do.
