Addressing Ableism

(90 minutes)

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.

Please note: This workshop touches on issues that may personally impact some of the workshop participants and facilitators. To create a safe space, please be advised that workshop participants will be asked to keep their cameras on at all times during the workshop.
