Description: Addressing the needs of people with disabilities isn't an accommodation, it is just good teaching and communicating! By making your classrooms, clinics and programs accessible to people with disabilities, you are able to address the needs of diverse individuals. Through understanding Universal Design for learning and communication, participants in this dynamic workshop will learn pragmatic strategies to immediately use with the individuals they work with. Workshop includes using multimodes of teaching and communicating so that participants not only learn about the topic, but are able to embody universal design. This workshop can be tailored to all populations with disability as the focus or as an adjunct to understanding diversity issues.
This can be a keynote (one hour) or an all day workshop.
