Call Me CAPABLETM Game (Price is $49.95)
Call Me CapableTM is an educational board game that helps students understand disabilities. It helps them learn to respect and empathize with persons with disabilities. It stimulates players to focus on the capabilities of people living with disabilities. The game is designed primarily for educating students who are not disabled, although disabled students enjoy playing immensely.
The game includes two sets of cards. One set can be used for elementary students. The other set with more challenging questions can be used for middle and high school students. This game has been successfully used with many groups of adults, children and teens. The game is intended to be a fun learning experience. There are no wrong answers.
Players move around the board picking cards and discussing the questions posed on the cards.
Call Me Capable
was originally developed by Carol Leish, who sustained disabilities from an auto
accident when she was a young child.
The game gives a unique insight into both the limitations and possibilities of
living with disabilities.
Most of all, the game reflects Carol's philosophy of focusing on the capabilities
of herself and other disabled people.
One of the important issues today is the dispute over the definition of a disability. This is still being litigated before the U.S. Supreme Court. In the games, we have included examples of only those disabilities over which there is no disagreement.
