Empatico activities are designed to be flexible and meet educators’ needs in various settings. The Empatico platform is adapted to support students with disabilities in the following ways:
- Resource for educators of students with disabilities, and their partner teachers, with tips on how to support a positive Empatico experience;
- Video for students that introduces the “what” and “why” behind Empatico before they start their Empatico activities;
- Videos to help educators incorporate sign language throughout the Empatico experience to create an inclusive space for students who are non-verbal or hearing impaired.
