Disability awareness ideas for teachers

Our perspectives about disabilities often begin in childhood. CeDIR has a new book called "Teaching about Disabilities through Children's Literature" by Mary Anne Prater and Tina Taylor to help kids learn about disabilities in a positive way. This is a valuable resource for teachers that talks about representations of disabilities in literature and how to use children's books to teach about disabilities. There are lists of relevant children's books on specific disabilities as well as lesson plans, unit plans, worksheets, and activities.

Indiana residents may check out this item from us by calling 812-855-9396 or by e-mailing Out-of-state residents can find this book at your local public library.
