Often, people are intimidated by the unknown. Exposure to information on people with different disabilities is often limited in schools; therefore, when children see people who are different than them, they may not be very accepting. It is important to provide people who have disabilities with a safe and accepting environment in both schools and the community by starting to build awareness. In order to address this need for them, I have decided to present a lesson to elementary aged children targeting disability awareness. I have created a lesson curriculum for first grade students which will: teach the students about different disabilities, show students how having a disability might feel, and discussing how they could help a person who has a disability.
