Disability Awareness Puppets

a photo of the full cast

The “Count Me In” program is designed to dispel fears, myths and misconceptions about people with disabilities and to help children understand more about disabilities. In the show, large, multicultural, full-bodied hand and rod puppets talk about swimming, pizza, baseball, and homework. Information on a variety of disabilities is presented. The goal of the program is to present the puppets as fun, capable children who may have to do some things in a different way than their friends but their interests, feelings, likes and dislikes are the same as everybody else.
