Teaching Tolerance and Respecting Differences
Through the use of stories and songs, Beth & Scott help children understand and honor diversability, a powerful word that many propose to replace the less-powerful "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.
Celebrate Diversability gives children real advice, including:
- Be open and friendly to EVERYONE in school
- We sing "There are so many ways to be smart", so be curious to discover what's special about EVERYONE
- Always ask "do you need help?" before helping EVERYONE
This program is ideal for any school wishing to promote sensitivity to differences and create inclusion.
