As part of Mission Estancia's celebration of Ability Awareness month, the NCCSE AT crew gave a presentation and hands-on learning experiences to students kinder-5th grade. To help achieve the goal of bringing true awareness of what it feels like to have a disability, the AT group showed videos of students who have learning challenges in the areas of reading, writing, and organization, conducted an activity demonstrating the difficulty in knowing what you want to say and not being able to express it, as well as demonstrated what it's like to not be able to use your voice. The powerful videos and activities brought about thoughtful discussion of ways in which students can help students who might have difficulties at school. The AT group also shared technology tools and strategies that can help kids overcome these various challenges. Take a closer look at the slides below:
