COUNT ME IN:
An introduction to disability awareness and inclusion
Everyone wants to play, learn, have friends, and be included. The COUNT ME IN puppet program helps children understand that people with disabilities are much like they are. This age-appropriate introduction to disability awareness and inclusion is for grades 1 to 4 with a shorter preschool/kindergarten program. The cast includes Gina, who is blind and uses a cane; Jay, who is deaf or hard of hearing; Sally, who has a physical disability and uses a wheelchair; and their friends, Carmen and Mitch.

KIDS AGAINST BULLYING:
Practical tools children can use
Nobody likes to be picked on, ridiculed, or abused by their peers but 1 in 4 American children are bullied each year. The KIDS AGAINST BULLYING puppet program helps students learn ways to respond if they are being bullied, how to help if they see someone else being bullied, the difference between telling and tattling, and most importantly that no one ever deserves to be bullied. The interactive program includes skits about physical, verbal, and social bullying.
