One of the big problems facing people with learning disabilities was bullying by school children. Rather than just complaining about this we have designed a disability awareness programme aimed at primary school kids in P4-6. Using the story of the Hunchback of Notre Dame and an interactive football game members of TAG go into primary schools to talk about what it is like to have a disability and how it doesn’t stop you doing the things you want to do. We’ve had great feedback from over 2000 school children.
If you are interested in getting this workshop delivered in a primary school you are contacted with, or would like to make a contribution to this work, please contact your nearest region branch supporter.
