Disability Awareness Starts Here

Program

The D.A.S.H. program joins the forces of parents and teachers to provide the students with awareness and insight to the challenges of people with disabilities.  It is a program about friendship, about differences as well as similarities, and about the value of those differences.

D.A.S.H. presents four unique curriculums that utilize hands-on activities designed to simulate what it is like to live with a disability.  Children are encouraged to explore their feelings, think creatively, and discuss alternatives and solutions to the challenges created by a disability.  Each program concludes with a guest speaker where the children are invited to ask questions and share their new perspectives.
