Enrichment Resources

During These Challenging Times...
Understanding Our Differences has always worked hard to foster respectful and inclusive schools and communities for people of all abilities. During these challenging times, promoting mutual understanding is more important than ever – even if we have to do so remotely. That is why we’re pleased to provide the following enrichment resources for use at home, focused on students in grades 3 through 5.

These resources correspond to the broad and varied unit topics we cover in our disability awareness program and offer a “just a taste” of the themes and content we provide in our full two-hour unit presentations in schools. Please note that our staff has carefully vetted all of the resources we recommend. We welcome you to contact us at any time with your feedback, questions and comments at [email protected]. If this preview interests you in bringing the full UOD program content to your school, district or community organization, there is “how to” information at this link: https://understandingourdifferences.org/about/faq/.

**Note: Each unit topic has at least one suggested reading. We are keeping a list of ways to find our suggested reading titles as well as how to get access to books in general, either free or at very low cost. https://understandingourdifferences.org/findbooks/
