BCTF Workshop Detail
Ableism is a set of beliefs or practices that devalue and discriminate
against people with physical, intellectual, or psychiatric disabilities and
often rests on the assumption that disabled people need to be ‘fixed’ in one
form or the other. In this workshop, participants will learn more about
the way we view disability and learn how to identify and fight the stigma that
people with physical, intellectual, or psychiatric disabilities face every day.
Teachers will discuss and reflect on how an understanding of ableism can guide
their practice to cultivate
disability pride, in ourselves, our students, and beyond.
This workshop has
been adapted for online facilitation.
