Developmental Disabilities Awareness Program

Developmental Disabilities Awareness Program

CP of the North Country offers "Kids On the Block" and "Making Friends" presentations to kindergarten and 3rd/4th graders throughout schools in 6 counties. These FREE shows provide public education to children to help them learn to understand and accept people with developmental disabilities. The presentations include props like puppets and "helping tools" such as wheelchairs, crutches, white cane, and a guide dog. The age appropriate content captures the attention of young people and the message is clear, "We are all alike"! For more information contact Jim Williams at (315) 379-9667 or jim@cpnorthcountry.org
