  • Autism Awareness Month celebrated with message of understanding

    April was Autism Awareness month, but it was about so much more than awareness. It was about seeing our students for who they are. In Room 4 at Tappan Hill School, we felt strongly about making a bulletin board that the whole school could smile at during the month of April and possibly the remainder of the year.

    The message behind this bulletin board is so important, not just for students with Autism, but for all students with disabilities. It is also  a reminder to the adults who educate them to be understanding.
