In the Little Cypress-Mauriceville school district, both students and teachers make every effort to meet in the middle. The district joined the Project UNIFY - Meet in the Middle program three years ago and since then, there have been some big changes around Bear Country. Participants quickly realized that MIM not only benefits typically developing students by allowing them to become aware of intellectual disabilities, but it also benefits intellectually disabled students by increasing their confidence in themselves.
