UOD is a nationally recognized, educational program that teaches elementary school children to develop understanding and respect for fellow students and others with physical, sensory or developmental disabilities. UOD is an interactive disability awareness curriculum that North Andover Elementary Schools teach to 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. Each year, students participate in 2 to 3 sessions introducing various kinds of disabilities. The programs’ goals are to foster respect, acceptance and compassion for people of all abilities as well as increase tolerance and reduce bullying. It reinforces North Andover’s RAISE values.
