Paul CharettePaul Charette reads to two of his Head Start students.

Paul Charette Head Start teacher at Sunset Hill, has been recognized for achievements by the Fall River Committee to Employ persons with disabilitites.His response to being chosen for special recognition was simply, "I don't know why they chose me for the award, I am just doing what comes natural."
He said: "My physical disability is a learning tool and the youngsters relate to it and are accepting.

Paul--who has a bachelor's degree in psychology from Salve Regina University and has completed work on a master's degree in administration and justice at the school--began work at Head Start as a substitute teacher three years ago and worked his way up to head teacher at the Sunset Hill Center.
He added, "I have no feeling in my feet or toes so in order to walk I have to move my legs.I tell the children when they jump that I can jump too, with the aid of crutches, it looks different but it is jumping.They get it.Children understand if you take the time to explain."
Paul has undergone 25 operations for complications stemming from his spina bifida but that hasn't dampened his spirit and if anything just makes him want to prove that he is more than a disability "which is part of me but certainly not all of me."
When he was five, Paul entered St. Jean Baptiste School needing to use a walker.His parents visited the principal and spoke to teachers and described his needs in a time when there were not as many laws protecting the disabled.The Charettes won over the staff and Paul was allowed to be just one more child in school.
In his senior year at Salve, Paul was named to a fellowship on the Rhode Island Commission on the Handicapped.He watched the submission of legislation, summarized it for public consumption, and tracked the proposals through the two houses of the state legislature.
His graduate paper determined that the implementation of the Americans With Disabilities Act had a minimal economic impact on businesses in Fall River.

He said: "My physical disability is a learning tool and the youngsters relate to it and are accepting.Prejudices come later in life through a wide assortment of negative influences.We teach them now, in these precious formative years, to reject negativity in the future."
Born with spina bifida, an opening in the spine that could cause various degrees of paralysis and even death.Paul's natural mother immediately put up him up for adoption.Paul and Mary Charette adopted Paul when he was only three months old.

His graduate paper determined that the implementation of the Americans With Disabilities Act had a minimal economic impact on businesses in Fall River.
Paul's study concluded that, "The fear that the Americans with Disabilities Act would bankrupt small businesses simply never happened.In Fall River, businesses found that it took very little money to comply with the provisions of the act."
