Description:
The Northeast ADA Center has been producing and testing a unique animated cartoon series for children in elementary school that will educate them about disability inclusion. The video series, along with a companion curriculum, is intended to assist parents and educators with engaging children in conversations and in learning about people with disabilities and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The webinar will address the development, challenges, and testing of the cartoons and curriculum. It will share how the cartoons are made and give participants tips on how they can access and use this valuable resource.
