Educators have the potential of being important and powerful allies in resisting ableist habits in schools and the community. To become politicized in this way, it is vital that teacher preparation programs introduce their students to the lived experience and voices of the leading advocates and scholars with disabilities. The presenters will discuss how they innovatively incorporate the voices of those that matter into their curriculum and professional learning in order to provide access to powerful counter-narratives of disability.

Learning Goals:
  1. be aware of culturally proficient Essential Elements and Practices for incorporating voice and lived experiences into professional learning and research endeavors
  2. learn how to apply culturally proficient Essential Elements and Practices for incorporating voice and lived experience of those that matter and into professional learning and research endeavors
  3. become familiar with high quality resources for incorporating the voices of those who matter into curriculum and professional learning
