October is Disability Awareness Month across the
nation and in MCPS. At Wayside Elementary School, students learned about empathy
and disability awareness during the 4th annual Special Needs Awareness Program
(SNAP) week. Students spent the week going through simulations, using equipment
such as wheelchairs, walkers, blindfolds and communication devices to learn
about living with a disability. SNAP week culminated with a community concert
that featured Jesse Magee and the Rock-Able.
