During the afternoon of May 9th, 2013, I was invited by Understanding Our Differences to share my story with fifth graders for Memorial Spaulding Elementary School's Physical Disabilities Program. Understanding Our Differences did a phenomenal job preparing the students for this program. Understanding Our Differences is a model, interactive disability awareness curriculum that teaches children to “see the person and not the disability.” Throughout my entire day, there were no laughs at me (only with me when I would tell a joke), pointing, or even stares. The students had so many intelligent questions after both of my speeches.
