Disability Awareness Videos: Turning Isolation into Inclusion (Special Olympics)
Since October is Disability Awareness Month, Special Olympics Virginia offers age-appropriate videos promoting inclusion of people with differences. Elementary-level videos feature a Special Olympics athlete and siblings reading picture books. Videos highlighting how people turned their experiences with isolation into inclusive opportunities are available for older students. Optional discussion questions and activities are available for each lesson. When students do return to school in person, these videos can encourage continued inclusive practices that make everyone feel welcome.
