In this webinar, Kristina Scott (Associate Professor, Childhood Education and Care), and Laurie Dickstein-Fischer (Associate Professor, McKeown School of Education), discuss the ways that disability representation in media is often skewed and is a disservice to the neurodiversity movement. This presentation will review examples of tokenized representation and challenge these portrayals by focusing on culturally sustaining practices.
Participants will begin to examine classroom and school-based practices that are neuro-inclusive and reaffirm that all students belong, and all voices need to be heard.
