Non-disabled and persons with disabilities are represented as central characters in our curricular materials, including in leadership roles. Characters with and without disabilities are shown interacting together, and various disabilities are represented. Positive qualities such as leadership, intelligence, courage, and integrity are represented across individuals and groups. Self-advocacy, independence, and helping students meet their highest potential are continuously reflected in our materials.
