What kids can learn from their schoolmates with disabilities

Download our Friends Who Care curriculumIt’s August, and the kids will be back in school before you know it. You know what that means, don’t you? It’s time to take a look at our free disability awareness curriculum.

Our FRIENDS WHO CARE® program is a fun, interactive program that helps students learn how kids with 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.

The FRIENDS WHO CARE® program is sponsored by our long-time Easter Seals partner, the Friendly Ice Cream Corporation. The program helps parents and elementary school educators teach kids about people with disabilities and encourage kids to accept their classmates who have disabilities as people first, and to find ways to include everyone in school and after-school activities.
