Teaching Disability

The seven activities in this chapter are a deeper dive into the disability experience. The effects of disability-related fatigue are explored in an activity that takes place over 1 week and in a second activity that requires making difficult choices about ways to reduce fatigue. The third activity has students immerse themselves in a disability venue. The fourth activity, done in small groups, focuses on microaggressions, collecting data from 10 disabled people about microaggressions experienced. The fifth activity has students experience television using captioning to explore what is missed in information given to Deaf people. The sixth activity has students pick one problem for people with disabilities and to write the appropriate official requesting a specific change, using data, an example story, and a proposed solution. The last activity assumes some level of clinical skills and involves making clinical responses to eight vignettes involving individuals, couples, or families with disabilities.

Keywords:   disability fatigue, outsider versus insider, microaggressions, close-captioning, community accessibility, clinical vignettes
