The Town of Sudbury’s Commission on Disability, the Goodnow Library, and Sudbury Cooperative Preschool’s Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion initiative invite you to join us on Sunday, October 23 from 1:30-4:30pm to come together to celebrate and learn about differences, abilities, and how you can be an ally for people with disabilities.
Authors Jake Marrazzo and Lotte Diomede will read their books followed by activities led by Understanding Our Differences, a nationally recognized, award-winning program that uses a hands-on curriculum to foster acceptance and inclusion for people of all abilities. Viking Martial Arts will also lead a class.
In addition, families can participate in a scavenger hunt of activities including an adaptive bike zoo, crafts, and learning around the library led by:
When a child completes the scavenger hunt, their name will be entered to win a $100 gift card at Learning Express Toys and Gifts, gift card to New City Microcreamery, and books about equity and inclusion.
Open to all ages, but activities are geared towards children who are 18 months old to 12 years old with their families.
This event is part of the “Understanding Differences: A Look at Disability” series. A sensory space/calm down room will be available for families during this event. You can also download a social story by clicking here.
