We are excited to welcome The IDEA (Interactive Disability Education Awareness) Project to Shadow
Lake! Your student will be participating in this great experience on Tuesday, February 11 and
Wednesday, February 12.
The IDEA Project is a non-profit organization, located right here in Maple Valley. Allison
Bureau is the founder and is a mother of a child with special needs. The IDEA Project’s in-school
curriculum directly addresses the need to create empathy among students, understanding of
their peers with disabilities, and promote school cultures of inclusion across all students. The
IDEA Project’s disability awareness program kicks off with a group assembly by grade-level,
followed by individual activity stations, all of which are tailored to meet the developmental stage
and grade level of the students. The program introduces students to the idea of differences, and
what it is actually like to have different abilities.
