Top Inclusion Models and Best Buddies are two student clubs at the Wilton High School in Wilton, Connecticut. They joined together to create this video in honor of their school’s Disability Awareness Week.
The two clubs want to share their message, which includes not using the “R-word”, using people first language (such as a “boy with Autism” instead of an “autistic boy”) and valuing everyone’s abilities.
As these students point out, Disability Awareness goes beyond this week and their school. Please support them by sharing their message!
Way to go, kids!
