The Toy Box: Introducing Disability to Young Learners

[Image description] Book cover. Title is at the top “Susan Laughs” and the author and illustrators names are in black on the bottom Jeanne Willis illustrated by Tony Ross. In the middle, Susan is on one side of a see-saw and a black and white cat is hanging on the bar.

In this lesson students will get to explore and examine toy and adult versions of accessibility devices. The idea is to introduce disability to students using tactile and observational learning. Students will learn that all these devices are for people with disabilities to live their lives, enjoy themselves and access community. It is no different from the everyday tools we use throughout our lives.
