The Kids on the Block
Tolerance and Diversity, two words that make the world a better place. And you can help children understand how — with The Kids on the Block show.
Each show is designed to be a fun way to increase awareness and understanding of children with disabilities. A typical show lasts approximately 50 minutes and features a choice of any three skits:
• Cerebral Palsy
• Down Syndrome
• Learning Disabilities
• Spina Bifida
After each skit, students are invited to ask the puppets questions about their disabilities. Teachers are also provided with supplemental activities for use with students throughout the year.

The Kids on the Block puppet shows are presented by The Children’s Institute as a community service. The cost is $240 plus mileage for one program and $225 for each additional program on the same day. These fees are used to maintain the quality of the program — no profit is made for The Children’s Institute.
