This innovative program, featured in the New York Times, is an educational tool in which individuals living with genetic, physical, intellectual and behavioral differences blog about life from their perspective.
This is a creative tool for classrooms, professional development, research as well as anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding and respect for human diversity. Concurrently, the individuals and their families living with difference are empowered to become self-advocates and use their unique voices to foster positive change.
The PEARLS Project is free.
You can access our “sample” PEARLS site by texting the word ‘pearls’ to 56512 on your smart phone.
