Understanding Our Differences is a model, interactive disability awareness curriculum that teaches children to “see the person and not the disability.”  On November 14, Cabot 5th graders will participate in a unit on Physical Disabilities.

The Physical Disabilities unit is designed for students to learn about the various causes of physical disabilities, the definitions of terms such as “disability” and “handicap”, and attitudinal and architectural barriers.  Students also get hands-on experience with adaptive equipment and assistive technologies.
