Dignity. Respect. Inclusion.

We change attitudes and build understanding so that people with all types of disabilities – learning, behavioral, developmental, emotional and physical – can enjoy the respect, support and opportunity that we all deserve.

Free Classroom Programs

We offer free disabilities awareness and sensitivity programs for southern and central Maine elementary school students. Our programs build sensitivity and understanding, reduce bullying, and help create more inclusive schools and communities. Click on the player button to the left to watch a short video.

Teacher Resources

Our free follow-up lesson plans and activities are available to teachers and guidance counselors at schools that have hosted our programs.

These resources reinforce key messages of sensitivity, respect and inclusion and allow students to further explore specific topics related to what they learned in our classroom sessions. We also offer book recommendations and discussion guides/activities to all schools and families.
