Walk In My Shoes (WIMS) is an inclusion program developed in collaboration with Floris Elementary PTA, staff and administration. This program was inspired by existing simulation events and has been offered yearly at Floris E.S. since 2015.
Walk In My Shoes is a fun and flexible way to shift mindsets, start conversations, and support your inclusion goals! It includes hands-on activities designed to help general education students understand what it is like for some of their friends with learning differences. The activities move students from knowledge acquisition and attitude change to a discussion about simple ways they can help a friend! See what students, schools and volunteers say!
We are committed to helping other schools and community organizations hold this event. The program guide provides everything you need to plan your event including tips for recruiting and training engaging volunteers, activity scripts, worksheets and so much more!
