ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
Creator, Amanda Preston, is a registered social worker and parent to 8 children, 7 of whom have invisible disabilities. After years of experiencing social gaps and challenges with her children making and keeping friends in the classroom, sports teams, and neighborhood, she developed this simple and interactive presentation geared towards children aged 4-10.
By introducing children to the concept of disabilities and comparing and contrasting invisible disabilities, children are able to better empathize with children in their world who may have differing needs and abilities. With the ability to tailor each presentation to your own child, this presentation can work with almost any invisible disability whether it be behavior based, brain based, or medically based.
Teacher’s can also utilize this presentation without customizing it to the needs of a specific child. Instead, they can present this at the beginning of each school year in an effort to create an atmosphere of understanding and acceptance.
