Equal opportunity to fully participate in education is a civil right. But how can we, as graduate students, make our classrooms accessible and inclusive for all students? In this session, we will discuss institutional policies and pedagogical practices to create an accessibility-conscious classroom to better meet the needs of all your students. We will discuss some of the challenges students with disabilities have faced and may continue to face in seeking equal access to the classroom; the language of accessibility and inclusion; and what kinds of services are available to support students seeking accommodations. By familiarizing ourselves with these tools and histories, we can work to combat stereotypes and misconceptions about students with disabilities and instead promote an environment where differences are recognized and welcomed.
