Children with disabilities are 2-3 times more likely to be bullied than their nondisabled peers, and the vast majority of students who bully are often unconsciously unaware of why they belittle people with disabilities. In addition, research2 shows that the effects of bullying cost the average school a conservative estimate of $21,600 annually.
PEOPLE LIKE US takes anti-bullying education to the next level by captivating the hearts of its participants before simply educating their minds. PEOPLE LIKE US empowers students to understand individuals who have disabilities and inspires them to engage, rather than exclude, those who seem different. By educating this generation about the capabilities of individuals with disabilities, they learn to not only embrace them in the present, but also to consciously create opportunities of inclusion for them in the future.
