What I have seen A Touch of Understanding, Inc doing ever since I became aware of Leslie DeDora and her incredible, dedicated, determined, warm and welcoming staff (long ago, in my sixth grade classroom) is something that the world desperately needs. The message of compassion and understanding that this team takes directly to the classroom and the community is critical to forging a new generation that fights intolerance and prejudice with hope and empathy. But flowery words aside, these people are committed to making things happen. The discussions I've had and the projects I've worked on have all been well thought-out, practical, and designed to actually *do* things in the community. I've seen first-hand people associated with this organization overcome *incredible* odds pull through, excel, and go out to do things that are incredible by *any* standard. ATOU's message is strong and compassionate, ATOU's people brim with a quiet strength and heart, and ATOU's leadership is rock solid. These are *good* people who know what they're doing.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Classrooms first hand, where kids who have taunted, teased, made fun of, or actually attempted to hurt their fellow students facing challenges have (after ATOU comes in) stopped, thought about it, and gone, "Wow, I didn't know it was like that..."

ATOU has changed my life! I developed a neurological disorder in my 30s and had to give up my career. ATOU has given me a new purpose in my life. I love talking and working with the school children. It is very rewarding to share my experience living with a disability. My main message to the kids is "I'm just like you" and they understand. Leslie DeDora and her team of staff and volunteers are so dedicated!! They work tirelessly to ensure that ALL people are treated with respect and kindness.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

improved empathy and understanding in the students' behavior towards each other and how they interact with special-needs and disabled students. ATOU's disability awareness program is fantastic and it really reaches the kids.
