"THE KIDS ON THE BLOCK" ARE A TROUPE OF DISABLED AND NON-DISABLED PUPPETS DESIGNED TO TEACH WHAT IT IS LIKE TO HAVE A DISABILITY. It's all about what kids CAN do, not what they can't! This interactive program uses four foot tall bunraku style puppets and covers the topics of blindness, deafness, mental retardation, and C.P.
