The Nora Project

The Nora Project aims to build awareness, understanding, empathy, and relationships with and around physical and emotional conditions such as down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism, and brain injuries. Often, students have heard these terms, but they don't actually understand what they mean and have not had the meaningful opportunity to build a friendship with a child who has one of these conditions. With the Nora Project we want to change this.
