Enrichment Resources for At-Home Learning

During These Challenging Times...
Understanding Our Differences is dedicated to fostering respectful and inclusive schools and communities for people with disabilities and chronic medical conditions. At a time when we prioritize students’ social-emotional skills, promoting mutual understanding is more important than ever. We encourage you to use these enrichment resources, focused on third through fifth graders, for learning at home. These resources correspond to the range of topics, themes and content we cover in our disability awareness program.

(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].

**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/
