An assembly on disability: free PSHE teaching resource

How easy is it for children to misunderstand someone’s disability?

This assembly story highlights how easy it is to disregard disabilities, in this case blindness, and the trouble that can be caused by not considering others. There are some questions posed at the end of the story to initiate discussion.

The assembly is drawn from Brilliant Stories for Assemblies which contains over 60 stories written by an experienced primary school headteacher and natural storyteller. Paul Urry has the gift of choosing the right words and subject matter to capture pupils’ interest and to inspire them.

This assembly is about visual disability. The Guide Dogs story started in 1931 with two amazing British pioneers, Muriel Crooke and Rosamund Bond. These remarkable women organised the training of the first four British guide dogs from a humble lock up garage in Wallasey, Merseyside. This year the Guide Dogs organisation is celebrating 80 years of extraordinary partnerships.
