Kids' Quest on Disability and Health

Description

The Kids’ Quest site is intended to get kids to think about people with disabilities and some of their experiences related to daily activities, health, and accessibility.

The quests include topics related to limitations people with disabilities face in participating in various activities. These limitations are grouped under motor, communication, personal care, and learning. Each quest contains the following:

  • A primary question
  • A set of related questions about other contributing issues
  • A series of questions about accessibility within the student’s own environment

The Kids’ Quests are designed for students in 4th, 5th, and 6th grades. Parents and teachers can modify the materials to meet students’ learning styles and levels. The quests can be used in lessons about health, social studies, and tolerance in society. Although students could do a quest entirely on their own, the developers suggest that parents and teachers work with students to share ideas, talk about issues raised, and encourage students to reflect about themselves and others.
