What better time to share our free disability awareness curriculum — FRIENDS WHO CARE® helps parents and elementary school educators teach kids about people with autism and other disabilities.

Our FRIENDS WHO CARE® program is a fun, interactive program that helps students learn how kids with autism and other disabilities go to school, make friends and play. The program teaches empathy, too, helping children understand what it means and how it feels to be a young person with a disability.

FRIENDS WHO CARE® is sponsored by our long-time Easter Seals partner, the Friendly Ice Cream Corporation. The program encourages kids to accept their classmates who have autism or other disabilities as people first, and to find ways to include everyone in school and after-school activities. Visit our Web site to learn more about FRIENDS WHO CARE and download the materials.
