From Ableism to Empowerment: Increasing Disability Awareness
Although approximately 1 in 5 individuals in the United States are disabled, people may avoid talking about disability because they are unsure of what to say. Unfortunately, silence can perpetuate disability-related stigma. In this talk, Dr. Bialka will present work that explores how to raise disability awareness, especially as it relates to K-12 and higher education. She will address questions about disability and language, examine how mainstream representations position disability as “other,” and provide concrete strategies that can be implemented across a variety of contexts.
