Understanding Our Differences is a model, interactive disability awareness curriculum that teaches children to “see the person and not the disability.”  On January 31, 2013, Cabot 3rd graders will participate in a unit on Deafness and Hard of Hearing.

The Deafness and Hard of Hearing unit includes a series of activities where students learn and get hands-on experience with sign language, lipreading, fingerspelling, and assistive technology. Students learn about sound, frequency, communication and the anatomy of the ear.
