Middle school students gain insight into disabilities

A Virginia disability-sensitivity program helped some middle school students learn more about the challenges faced by some of their classmates with special needs. "We really want to help the students understand that it's about the person, it's not about the disability," said eighth-grade special-education teacher Carrie Swats. "A lot of our kids are really good about saying hello and being friendly, but as far as interacting, they're not really sure." Daily Press (Newport News/Hampton, Va.)
