Rick Hansen School Program - Tools for Disability Awareness, Accessibility and Inclusion

Join the Rick Hansen team for a highly interactive workshop on building disability awareness, inclusion and citizenship skills in your classroom.  You will walk away with ready-made resources and practical activities you can take into your classrooms immediately. 


Our resources raise students’ understanding of the potential of people with physical, visual and hearing disabilities, and empower students to become difference makers in their school and community. They support a culture of inclusion, where all students accept differences and are best positioned to succeed.


Come find out how the Rick Hansen School Program’s free resources can be used in your school to Inspire, Engage, Include, and help meet your district’s social responsibility and inclusion goals at the same time.  You can also find out how to book a free guest speaker for your school!
