Classrooms will participate in a Reading Challenge, using the highly recommended children’s books provided. During the second half of the school year, the participating classrooms will receive disability education and each classroom teacher will receive a teacher toolkit with extension activities and calls to action. The goal of the DREAM school program is to continue fostering inclusion and normalizing disability.
“Representation matters. My children need to see themselves in pop culture, but just as importantly, so do their peers. I want my kids to go to school in a place where it is more than just ok to stick out. That our differences are celebrated and that our abilities are nurtured, no matter what they are. I want a world where potential and success are not measured by your test scores, but by a fulfilling life bursting with choices.”
