What educators are saying

My students loved the activities in this resource and I know they came away with a new understanding of people with various disabilities. Thank you!
This resource has been extremely helpful in planning our own day to highlight various disabilities. Our day is planned for May 18th- excited to see how it goes!


Easily host your own Disability Awareness Day at your school with this kit! Holding a Disability Awareness Day is a great way to not only increase awareness and acceptance, but it decreases bullying and helps general education students to better understand these special individuals. This kit will allow students to experience what it may be like to have a particular disability.

Using this kit students will get to rotate through six stations completing 2-3 activities in each station that cover six disabilities/impairments; and includes vision impairment, hearing impairment, physical impairment, Autism/communication impairment, intellectual disability, and learning disabilities such as dyslexia. Everything is ready to go and the suggestion and teacher instruction page will walk you through it every step of the way!

Teacher and parent letter templates are included and a pretest and posttest are also provided! The ending results of the event are priceless. The students at your school will be talking about it for days after. Download the preview to see every page in this kit.
