Product Description
Children, and sometimes even adults, are uncomfortable and unsure about how to interact with a person who has disabilities. This was the case in the children's book, "How Katie Got a Voice (and a cool new nickname)." When Katie, a girl who couldn't walk, talk, or do anything for herself, moved to a new school, her fourth grade classmates wanted to be friends with her, but couldn't figure out how. As the delightfully illustrated story progresses, barriers to communication are overcome, and the students learn to see Katie as more like them than different. The book concludes with rules of disability etiquette, which are excerpted in this Powerpoint. Use to introduce your class or youth group to disability etiquette, and help break down barriers in your school and community.
