Differently abled students often face discrimination in the very schools meant to encourage and protect them. In this session, we will read true teen-written stories about being differently abled and maneuvering a world that considers that a flaw. We will review key terms like disabled, differently abled, neurodiversity, and ableism, as well as how education systems can perpetuate stereotypes about people with disabilities. Participants will leave the session with a deeper understanding of their differently-abled students and actionable steps they can take to support them.
