How to Talk to Kids About Disabilities and Prepare Them to Value Differences in People
This week on the podcast, Dr. Kara Ayers and Dr. Susan Wiley, faculty members in our Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, join us to talk about how parents can help their kids understand and learn about people who have disabilities. Listen in as Dr. Ayers and Dr. Wiley share their professional and personal experiences to describe how damaging stereotypes and certain words can be, how to ask respectful questions and help curious kids include others and learn that we all have differences. They also generously share additional resources that can help families who want to continue to learn and explore how they can be more inclusive, understanding and respectful.
