Celebrate Diversability

Teaching Tolerance and Respecting Differences

Through the use of stories and songs, Beth & Scott  help children understand and honor diversability, a concept that many propose to replace “disability.” With their trademark sensitivity to important topics and their unique blend of humor and truth-telling, the Bierkos offer students and teachers ways to think and act when they meet people with diversabilities. This program is ideal for any school wishing to promote sensitivity to differences and create inclusion.

Unlike “bumper sticker” programs, Celebrate Diversability gives children real advice, including:

Instead of focusing on differences, focus on being open and friendly!
Before helping someone, ask if they need help and what you can do!
Don’t assume that someone who is different is unintelligent. They’re not!
