Just Like You! is a disability awareness program for primary school students and is designed to build understanding, acceptance and tolerance. Students learn that people with a disability are the same as everyone else – they are ‘just like you’.

The program has proven to change student’s perceptions of disabilities through positive and direct experience of a person with a disability. Questions are encouraged and appropriately addressed as an integral part of the program.
