Children With Disabilities
Based on UNICEF's flagship report, The State of the World's Children—a comprehensive annual assessment of the world's most vulnerable children—TeachUNICEF lesson plans help students gain a deeper knowledge of the issues facing children and youth around the world. By telling the story of Nodira as she copes with her disability—the grade-specific lesson plans illustrate the issues and challenges facing today's youth, as well as programs that are working to improve her life.
This collection of teacher resources addresses rights and inclusion of children with disabilities. The units highlight the story of a teenager named Nodira who shares her experience living with a disability. The lesson plans, videos, multimedia and stories in this collection illustrate the challenges that children with disabilities face, as well as how UNICEF is supporting them.
