DENVER -- A little bit of knowledge can go a long way.
In the spring edition of Denver7's More Alike Than Different special, contributors Hanna Atkinson & Connor Long take a look at many of the people and programs in Colorado that are bringing people together.
In this half hour, the hosts look at everything from sensory-friendly music programs provided by the Boulder Public Library and Philharmonic to adaptive cooking classes that help help those with disabilities not only learn skills but be safer in the kitchen whether living with others or on their own.
