Puppet Program

In 1979, the PACER Puppets, a multicultural cast representing children with various disabilities, were introduced to classrooms of kindergarten through fourth-graders. The puppets, each a unique work of handcrafted art, were created as an innovative teaching tool to educate children about their peers with disabilities and assist schools in efforts to implement programs of inclusion.
