December 10th marks the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which enshrines the rights entitled to all human beings regardless of race, color, religion, sex, birth, ability, status, property or national origin into international agreement. The landmark global pledge was signed on December 10, 1948, in Paris and has been responsible for the creation of over 70 other human rights treaties since then.
The theme for this year’s anniversary is “Dignity, Freedom and Justice for All,” with an emphasis on vulnerable groups, such as people with disabilities, to ensure no one is left behind.
As a former special education teacher and supervisor, I can say that a big part of what makes this day special is education; specifically equal access to high-quality special education that supports both students and educators and ensures everyone can to excel. The Healthy Relationships Curriculum is one of those opportunities – when students are presented with unique, easily modified lessons fit for any classroom, learning multiplies tenfold.
HRC offers students and educators the support they need through individualized, comprehensive programming such as:
- Over 80 Scenario Cards: These scenario cards turn the lessons into real-life situations to help students better understand them.
- Fun activities and videos for parents to help students with various abilities.
- Role Plays, Demonstrations, and Life-Skills Activities: The best way to teach life skills is by having students use them. Our role-playing demonstrations allow students to practice the skills they learned during their lessons.
Everyone deserves equal access to quality education fit for them. If you are looking for more ways to make your lessons engaging and less time consuming when teaching students of various abilities, I highly encourage you to request a free trial of the program or schedule a consultation with our team to discuss the curriculum.
