Reframing Disability: From Pathology to Capability

Presenter(s):
Rose Keston, Director of Resources for Disabled Students at Colorado State University
Description:
Historically perceptions of people with disabilities have ranged from the objects of pity to medical anomalies. In the last half of the past century, new ideas emerged that provided a different frame in which to consider the phenomenon of disability – having one is simply part of the human condition. This 3-part short course will explore the shift in perceptions regarding people with disabilities and discuss strategies that may help you to contribute to the shift, in and out of the classroom. Discussion Topics: Oct. 3: The Way We See Things is the Way We Do Not See Things Oct. 10: From Defect and Deviance to Difference and Diversity Oct. 17: From Adaptation to Revolution
