Future teachers learn All Kids Can™

I started off Autism Awareness month last Friday visiting a college class of future educators. Many of the students I talked to at Elmhurst College will be teaching this Fall, and it’s likely they’ll have children with autism in their classes.

I recommended a number of resources for these future teachers to use in their classrooms, including a link to All Kids Can. Created by the CVS/pharmacy Charitable Trust, All Kids Can is a $25 million commitment to making life easier for children with disabilities. Through this signature program, CVS and the Trust help nonprofit organizations like Easter Seals raise awareness in schools and in local communities about the importance of inclusion.

I’m confident the students I talked to last Friday will do well in their new careers, thanks in part to programs like All Kids Can. This CVS/pharmacy Charitable Trust Program not only helps teachers do their work, it also serves to remind all of us that … All Kids Can!
