A Touch Of Understanding

Our DECS 5th graders had an incredible workshop last week given by A Touch of Understanding. A Touch of Understanding (ATOU) provides disability awareness programs designed to educate a new generation to understand the challenges associated with disabilities and to accept and respect all individuals. Incorporated in 1996, A Touch of Understanding is a nonprofit organization comprised of dedicated individuals, some with disabilities and some without. These dedicated volunteers come together to form a strong team working to help students look beyond the disability, the wheelchair, the braces, the unpredictable behavior and see the person.

We are forever grateful for what they bring to DECS each year. This is a tradition that began last year and will continue for many more years to come.
