A TOUCH OF UNDERSTANDING INC
October 16, 2012

Fifteen years ago I was new to the Eureka Union School District and was told that I had to go see a program for disability awareness at one of our schools. I saw the program, now called A Touch of Understanding, in action and saw the immediate positive impact it had on not only students with disabilities, but all students and adults on campus. Over 50,000 students later, it has only grown stronger and when I retired it was the only non-profit that I said yes to when it was time to get involved. ATOU changes lives.

A TOUCH OF UNDERSTANDING INC

I first saw this organization in action in 1998 at a school in a district where I served as the Assistant Superintendent. The impact on students was immediate and longterm as I watched students befriend students with disabilities and back away from fear and bullying. After watching the program in action for ten years, including four when I served as Superintendent, I have watched the program grow and expand. When I retired, many groups asked me to join their boards, but this was the group that hit me in the heart, so it was the only one I joined. Now I'm working to get the program into as many schools as possible as ATOU reaches beyond the 50,000 students we will have reached as of this year.

The Great!

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

Changing the lives of young people who were either fearful of or ready to pick on others with disabilities, and the impact on those with disabilities.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Replicate it across the state, and the country.
