Teachers and Professionals

Dear Educator,

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope that you find this website to be a useful tool to spark thinking in youth and adults regarding people with disabilities. Each lesson acts as a different module, culminating in a group project where the participants will be able to apply what they have learned, hopefully showing greater empathy toward people with disabilities, as well as understanding how to take an appropriate advocacy role.

We have also provided a survey for us to gain feedback on how you applied the curriculum, and how it has evolved under your leadership and can be improved for other educators in the future. Any feedback you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

The IDAA Team
