DISABILITY AWARENESS LITERACY PROGRAM

A collaboration between Dow, Disability Network of Mid-Michigan, and the Saginaw ISD to promote awareness and education in an effort to break stigmas about people with disabilities.

“Our goal is to start conversations about disabilities with children at a young age. We hope to get students thinking about disability as being a natural part of the human condition, to teach acceptance and inclusion, and to increase thinking about diversity.”

- Kelly PeLong, DNMM Executive Director

  • A book highlighting a disability topic and featuring individuals who have a disability

  • A packet of activities related to the book
