Our education system in the United States has traditionally utilized disability awareness activities and events as a means to teach acceptance. Now more than ever, with a push toward diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in education, educators are often unsure about how to update their disability awareness initiatives. This guide will give you clear and respectful guidelines for including disability within DEI frameworks. 

The guide explores

  • What We've Always Done and Why it Doesn't Work
  • The Medical and Social Models of Disability
  • Disability Studies in Education
  • What Exactly Should We Talk About (ableism; access; assistive technology; disability history & disability rights; disability justice; diversity, equity, and inclusion; multiply marginalized individuals; respectful language; words and phrases to avoid)
  • How Do We Do Disability Awareness (in reading, writing, social studies, math, science)

Educators will learn the importance of

  • framing disability as normal and natural;
  • framing disability as a valuable part of diversity;
  • framing disability as a cultural identity that coexists with other identities, worthy of dignity and respect;
  • framing disability from a perspective that people are more disabled by society than by their own physical, mental, or developmental limitations (the social model).

This guide is an invaluable resource for all educators working toward true understanding and inclusion in the classroom and beyond.
