DJUSD Spotlight:

Students Learn Empathy

Birch Lane students particpated in a unique workshop designed to build empathy and ignite respect for all individuals, offered by the non-profit group A Touch of Understanding® (ATOU). The disability-awareness program has been in existence since 1996 and has reached out to over 65,000 students in the Sacramento area through a team of volunteers, half of whom are disabled.  As one of the many efforts at schools around the district to support a positive school climate, students learned about individuals with physical disabilities, autism, sensory challenges and much more.  Students circulated through stations where, among other activities, they used canes and wheel chairs, participated in exercises to simulate learning disabilities and auditory challenges and learned to write their names in braille. The hope is that their message continues to grow within the hearts, minds and behaviors of our school community.
