IN 2001, a team of artists, historians, and grade-school students met to create a public exhibit on the history of disability. There were historical presentations, parent discussion groups, art sessions with children, and a school forum linking children from an honors English class with children from a "varying exceptionalities" classroom.

Out of this interaction also came this brief essay on what it means to be different, written as an introduction to the art exhibit.
