Abstract

Individuals with disabilities face many physical, cognitive, and/or emotional challenges and must attend to societal factors that often limit participation in activities and interactions with others (King et al., 2003). One method of educating and helping children learn about and become more comfortable interacting with their peers with disabilities is having them participate in disability awareness programs (Magnusson et al., 2017). The purpose of this article is to provide the reader with suggestions and tips to plan a disability awareness program and describe the activities included in an event which celebrated Girl Scouts World Thinking Day.Subscribe to PALAESTRA
