About this event

Your children will gain knowledge, perspectives, and simple skills they can use to learn how to interact with and include ALL children. The event activities teach about specific disabilities and conditions in a way that enables them to be more empathetic to others in any situation. This will help them build empathy skills that they will take with them into the world. Empathetic children are more successful in social situations, show less aggression, and are highly valued by their friends, colleagues, and future employers.
