Fall Update on Changing Perspectives

** It’s been a busy start to the school year….
————————————————————

Wow, I could not have imagined a better start to the 2015-2016 school year! Changing Perspectives has officially launched a 6 week Disability Awareness Curriculum and the feedback has been outstanding. With only a few weeks into the school year we have already secured 8 schools to pilot the program.

Changing Perspectives is excited to be working with Sharon Elementary School, Folsom School, Lyme Elementary School, Hartland Elementary School, Shelburne Community School, Porters Point School, Newbury Elementary School and the Dothan Brook School.

The 6 week Disability Awareness Curriculum is designed for teacher customization. The focus of the Changing Perspectives program is to engage students in hands on learning to build greater awareness of differences and inspire empathy. The curriculum consists of three parts.

      1. LEARN (Preliminary dialogue) – provides students with activities which will expose them to a variety of disabilities
      2. EXPERIENCE (Real world experience) – engages students to help them understand what it is like to live with a disability
      3.REFLECT (Personal reflection) – Allows students to reflect on their experiences, make connections, and show evidence of their growth in understanding.

We still have room for additional schools who are interested in piloting the program so spread the word! Be sure to like us on Facebook.
