My Friend Franklin is an inclusion awareness program delivered over two weeks (2 x 45 min sessions) to schools in Central Western NSW.
Facilitator, Cody Jones, shares his experiences growing up with a disability. ‘Franklin’ is Cody’s walking stick and without Franklin, Cody would not be able to go to work and do many of the things he loves.
Cody shares his experiences of disability and uses real life examples that help explain why accessibility is so important. He also shares experiences of his childhood and also talks about his achievements in life and what he loves doing in his spare time.
There is so much more to Cody than his disability.
The program provides opportunity for children to explore and discuss what it means to be inclusive of disability and to ask questions.
Students are challenged to look at their own role in society and their contribution to positive and negative mindsets, and are encouraged to find inclusive ways of communicating and acting.
This free program can be adjusted to cater for school aged children K-Y6 and can be delivered in schools in and around Central Western NSW.
