A TOUCH OF UNDERSTANDING INC
August 19, 2009
ATOU has such an amazing program I don't even know where to begin. The first time that I went through their presentation I was blown away. The impact of the speakers and the the hands on experience is truly amazing. The kids were very receptive and I think that what ATOU offers is a chance for them to understand not only what it would be like to live with a disability, but what it's like for people to treat you differently because of a disability. I have watched the amazement on the kids faces as they begin to understand and feel what it's like. It teaches empathy and patience, as well as that it's better to ask if you are curious rather than just stare and make fun. This program is by far, one of the most valuable programs I have ever experienced or seen as at some point in all of our lives we will come across a person with a disability or illness of some kind.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
a school atmosphere and the value and education that it provides to children both with and without disabilities is unsurpassed.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
everyone is so friendly and patient.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
individuals both with disabilities and without.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
educate the way that it needs to. I've seen the effects of this program & it's ability to change lives for those w/o disabilities as they begin to understand what it's like to live with a disability and for those w/ disabilities as they share their story
