“In recent weeks, I’ve heard a 4th grade girl share with a staff member that because of this program ‘I have learned how it feels to be in someone’s shoes that have a disability’.”
This curriculum is a wonderful way to introduce students to life after high school. It is clearly laid out in a professional, workable, and presentable manner. T’NT provides students with high functioning disabilities with valuable information on educational opportunities, employment information, budgets, and independent living. I would recommend this program to any school district looking to empower their students and prepare them for post-school activities.
Many of my students feel more comfortable sharing some of their invisible disabilities with their classmates, which I believe is directly related to the lessons taught through OnRAMP’s curriculum, iBelong as they know that all students now have a basic understanding of how to treat others.
T’NT helps expose students to what life is like post high school. I especially liked the mock interviews and how it benefited the students.
“Meeting real people with disabilities really provides many teachable and memorable moments.”
I find that the T’NT curriculum coincides very well with the textbook we use each day in our class. I also find the variety of topics, technology and community partners to be helpful in having the students grasp the concepts we are teaching.
I liked T’NT. It helped by bringing in different people to talk about subjects I need to know about for my future.
“I think the dyslexia lesson gave students a good understanding of the struggle people with this disability go through.”
The topics we have talked about are very helpful and will pay off later.
“I liked learning more about the different conditions like ADHD and autism. It was educational and fun! And I also learned some sign language!”
“Having students look at their IEP accommodations and understand what they are is really helpful to them.”
