Paralympic school day: A new way to grow disability awareness

Welcome to the blog portion of the What's New in APE' podcast platform! In this episode we highlight a Paralympic school day model that is an "educational program that aims to create awareness and understanding in schools about persons with an impairment" (International Paralympic Committee, 2019). Within this episode we will talk with stakeholders from universities, K-12 schools and a wheelchair basketball team that implement Paralympic school days at both universities and public schools. More specifically, we will discuss how these stakeholders got involved in this program, how the program impacts students with and without disabilities' perspectives, and how someone else could get bring this model to their own school!
