Northeast Passage Teaches Kids About Disabilities

By Beth Potier, Media Relations
January 30, 2008

On Jan. 25, 25 home-schooled students (ages 7–13) visited UNH’s Northeast Passage for an afternoon of “Similarity Awareness.” Emma Bricker, wife of UNH president Mark Huddleston and member of the Northeast Passage advisory board, hosted the event with Northeast Passage program specialist Chandler Bullard.

The home-schooled students, who are not disabled, played wheelchair sports like tag, Sharks and Minnows, and basketball in the Hamel Recreation Center.

Similarity Awareness is a curriculum created by Northeast Passage to facilitate understanding and improve the social environment within school for children with disabling conditions. To learn more about Similarity Awareness and Northeast Passage, go to http://www.nepassage.org/trek_sim_aware.html.
