AgDARE - Agricultural Disability Awareness and Risk Education

  • Kidd, Pamela;
  • Reed, Deborah

This curriculum consists of four units (amputation, spinal cord injury, hearing loss, and farmer's lung) that can be used as either stand-alone units or a total package. The focus of the curriculum is to use the concept of disability to teach injury prevention and safety behavior while completing farm work. Because of developmental issues, teens are less likely to react to a threat of injury or death but are more responsive to avoiding disability and a change in body image.
