Same and Different Like Me

Over the next few months we will be implementing our Same and Different Like Me, Understanding Our Differences program. This program introduces our students to a range of disabilities. The program incorporates lessons at each grade level as part of our Open Circle time and are team-taught by special education and classroom teachers. This program is made up of six units, one taught each year K-5. Students will learn about: including one another (K), physical disabilities (grade 1), sensory disabilities (grade 2), learning disabilities (grades 3 and 4), autism spectrum disorders, and topics in mental health specific to depression and anxiety (grade 5). The program aims to give children an accurate, current perspective on disability-related issues which are appropriate to their development level. The goal is to begin and maintain a conversation in classrooms about how we are all the "same and different." If you have questions about the program, please feel free to contact me.
