Empowering Students with Disability History: A Workshop for Special Education Professionals

Home E Events E Empowering Students with Disability History: A Workshop for Special Education Professionals

This short workshop empowers Special Education teachers to integrate disability history and foster supportive attention to disability across the K-12 academic curriculum, by providing them with basic historical knowledge and curriculum materials.

This workshop will present the long arc of disability history from early in American history through the Disability Rights Movement of the 1970s and 1980s. Participants will learn strategies to provide students with the tools to self-determine their identity as persons with disabilities and to embrace an empowering model of disability. Particpants will also explore tools and strategies to introduce and explore disability in separate and integrated classrooms, including access to curriculum and resources to integrate disability history across the curriculum.
