Product Description
People with disabilities often face insensitivity that can make it difficult for them to interact with others. In some cases, the insensitivity arises when others do not understand the nature of the disability, or do not recognize it. Particularly in school environments, people with disabilities are often ostracized, teased or bullied. This lesson (among many other empathy building activities) will allow students to develop an understanding of people’s differences, (and similarities), and how they can work with them both in and out of the classroom. Empathy lessons should each build on one another, presenting new situations or scenarios to students, and ways students can handle them. This lesson would introduce autism, with a literature connection, Andy and His Yellow Frisbee. This story is about Sarah, a new girl at school who is curious about why Andy spins his yellow Frisbee every day by himself on the playground. The story explains Autism in a very gentle and general way, but it illustrates some of the main challenges that children with this disability face. A class discussion would follow this Read Aloud, and two group activities, which will allow students to practice responding to situations readily found in classrooms and schools, with empathy.
