The workshops

Just Like You is a disability awareness program designed to build understanding, acceptance and inclusion. Through celebrating differences, developing empathy and creating inclusion, students learn that people with a disability are the same as everyone else – they are ‘Just Like You’.

Just Like You is designed for primary school students’ specific year groups, and mapped against the Australian Curriculum. The workshops are for 3 separate stages (Year 1 & 2, Year 3 & 4, Year 5 & 6) and can be delivered face-to-face or via digital platform.

Just Like You workshops are lively, interactive and compelling, where students are engaged to reflect on their own roles and actions as a citizen in their school and community.
