Children With Disabilities: Nodira's Story (9-12)


Children With Disabilities: Nodira’s Story will help teachers to engage students by:
• Promoting student reflection and critical thinking about being global citizens.
• Encouraging understanding about the ways in which children, specifically children with
disabilities, are excluded from education and essential services around the world.
• Introducing UNICEF programs that address the root causes of the exclusion of children.
• Drawing parallels between the experience of children in the United States and of children
elsewhere around the world.

Help for Children With Disabilities

Children with disabilities are among the most vulnerable and marginalized groups in the world. They are far more likely to be victims of violence, have higher rates of malnutrition and more difficulty accessing safe drinking water. When given a chance to get an education, children with disabilities can overcome barriers, learn to be productive and reach for their dreams.
