Course Description

This course provides a framework for critically analyzing disability issues consistent with an anti-oppression/social justice perspective, one that explores the societal roots of disability disadvantage. Students are introduced to the concepts of oppression, devaluation, ableism, and intersectionality and to a range of theories including social role valorization. We challenge some of the traditional (and damaging) assumptions made about the perceived "needs" of disabled people and examine strategies that can make a positive difference at the individual, community and societal levels.
