CORE PD: Addressing Ableism- Different, Not Less

Eligible To Attend

Site Director, Site Supervisors, Assistant Director, Ed. Specialists/Instructional Coordinators, Nonprofit leaders, and Senior Group Leaders


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.

School-Age Child Care training regulations satisfied: 3

Please note that active participation during the session is required in order to receive letters of completion. Letters of completion can only be distributed to participants whose identities are verified.


Remote. A link to the training will be sent by email.
