Curriculum Resources

Curriculum Resources are made available through our customizable Educator Portal.  This online platform allows users to access an array of curricular resources, parent resources, educator implementation guides, and more.


Our PreK Empathy & Kindness curriculum is an activity-based program that gives educators tools and resources to implement activities and lessons that align with social-emotional goals for early learning.


Social-emotional learning is a key foundation to promote empathy,  diversity and disability awareness. The elementary years is a formative time to create the framework for ongoing SEL growth.

Middle School

To ensure today’s students can become tomorrow’s inclusive leaders, we must provide them with meaningful experiences to learn about disabilities in safe and respectful ways that promote empathy and connection.

High School

School Consultations

All School Consultations are available on-site and virtually.

Educators & Paraeducators

On-site and virtual training is available in several formats to support educators and paraeducators. Available options include; full and half-day workshops, individual or small-group coaching , and classroom visits.

School Leaders

To support school leaders we offer individual and small group coaching and school wide audits to facilitate high level systemic change.


Through workshops and resources we strive to engage families in meaningful conversations on how they can support their students at home. Parents are collaborative members of the Changing Perspectives team. 


Changing Perspectives works directly with  students through in person or virtual workshops and assembly style presentations. Content focuses around the themes of kindness, empathy and inclusion.
