Nora Friends


We are recruiting students with disabilities to be “Nora Friends”-- the VIPs of the project who will visit participating classrooms and make new friends! Not sure whether your child is right for the project? Nora Friends generally fall into either or both of the following categories: (1) Children who may not be able to introduce themselves or tell their stories independently, or  (2) Children who, due to differences in how they look, move, or communicate, may find it challenging to make friends.
