Our Kit for Kids program is designed to teach elementary and middle school students about their peers with autism. The kit is centered around an illustrated booklet entitled “What’s Up with Nick?”. This colorful, kid-friendly booklet tells the story about a new student, a boy with autism named Nick, through the eyes of a typical peer. The story teaches children that students with autism may think differently or need some accommodations, but all students are of equal worth and should be treated as such.
This program can be used to increase awareness of autism among students from grades K-8.
The Kit for Kids includes: 20 “What’s Up with Nick?” Booklets, 1 How to Use Sheet, 1 Lesson Plan, 1 Small Classroom Poster, and 1 Lesson Tips Sheet
