Explore our range of free lessons for grades nine to 12 that will help you increase disability awareness, accessibility and inclusion, and empower your students to make a difference in their school, community and the world. All our lessons, teacher guides, worksheets and additional resources are connected to provincial curriculum.

Abilities in Motion (Grades: 9-12)

This toolkit increases awareness about the importance of accessibility and inclusion while changing attitudes about the potential of people with disabilities. Have your students try this fun and effective tool to develop communication, teamwork, mentoring and creative thinking skills, and foster an understanding of social responsibility.

Difference Maker Toolkit (Grades: 9-12)

This toolkit supports young people’s unique vision of positive change in their communities. Lessons teach key skills such as goal-setting, analysis, teamwork, and planning and presentation skills, with a strong emphasis on collaboration and inclusive teamwork.

Personal Leadership Unit (Grades: 9-12)

Everyone should have the opportunity to explore and exercise leadership. This toolkit provides students with a new outlook on leadership, as something that already exists within themselves rather than outside themselves. As Rick says, “What saved me is I focused on what I could do.” Lessons focus on problem-solving, decision-making, and communications skills.
