Human-Centered Approaches to Teaching About Disabilities
Cultivating disability awareness in your classroom should always include the unique perspectives of people living with physical, cognitive, sensory and mental disabilities so that non-disabled students can understand the injustices this population faces and become effective advocates. This collection of videos, articles and lesson plans can be used to explore disabilities in a way that normalizes and affirms the experiences of medically-diverse people. Many of these resources can be used for a wide range of ages, so this playlist has been organized by type instead of grade level. They can be used on their own or combined to create a cohesive lesson plan.
