About I.D.E.A., a student group at Holy Family:

Interdisciplinary Disability Education and Acceptance (IDEA)
IDEA was formed as a safe place for all individuals within the Holy Family University community. We will gather and share ideas on how to make Holy Family a more accepting and positive place to learn in a holistic fashion. We, the members of Holy Family IDEA Association, aim to eradicate stereotypes and assumptions leading to discomfort within the community, increase socialization between students of all abilities, and serve as a supporting and accepting environment.

About Wonder by R.J. Palacio

"Wonder is a rare gem of a novel--beautifully written and populated by characters who linger in your memory and heart. August Pullman is a 10-year-old boy who likes Star Wars and Xbox, ordinary except for his jarring facial anomalies. Homeschooled all his life, August heads to public school for fifth grade and he is not the only one changed by the experience--something we learn about first-hand through the narratives of those who orbit his world. August’s internal dialogue and interactions with students and family ring true, and though remarkably courageous he comes across as a sweet, funny boy who wants the same things others want: friendship, understanding, and the freedom to be himself. “It is only with one’s heart that one can see clearly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.” From The Little Prince and R.J. Palacio’s remarkable novel, Wonder.--Seira Wilson" - https://www.amazon.com/Wonder-R-J-Palacio/dp/0375869026?keywords=wonder&qid=1539799161&sr=8-2&ref=sr_1_2.
