Mall Haul The Anna Foundation For Inclusive Education Mall Haul pairs students with Trisomy 21 with their typically developing peers together for a fun, supervised back-to-school shopping experience. Many students with disabilities have never had the opportunity to participate in that great American rite of passage ~ back-to-school shopping with friends at the mall, something as simple and easy as hanging out with friends.

  • Creating friendships between typical students and students with Trisomy 21
  • Helping to reduce social isolation for students with Trisomy 21
  • Helping to end harassment and stereotyping of students with Trisomy 21
  • Helping typical students gain a greater knowledge of the similarities among themselves and a student with Trisomy 21
  • Creating opportunities for all participants to apply money and math skills
  • Creating opportunities for students with Trisomy 21 to succeed independently in a public environment in a fun, positive way
