Similarity Awareness

 

Program Description:

Northeast Passage has developed a program called Similarity Awareness. This teaching series is geared towards students in a school setting. We discuss disabilities and how we are more similar than we are different. This program has videos, books, quizzes, and group activities. This teaching gets children of all ages involved in thinking about an array of subjects concerning disabilities and more importantly allows children to speak out and understand the beauty we all have.
