DDLS Fall 2020

Self-Determination, Inherent Dignity, and Full Participation


October 30, 2020 - Duration 2 hrs

 

Michael Wehmeyer, PhD

Ross and Marianna Beach Distinguished Professor in Special Education
Chair, Department of Special Education
Senior Scientist and Director, Beach Center on Disability

University of Kansas
Lawrence, KS

If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that we must refocus and redouble our efforts to ensure that all people in our society have opportunities to fully participate and be included in the life of our communities. This presentation will look at how policies and practices of incrementalism in our field predicated on a long history of segregation, discrimination, and deficits-based models of disability have failed to ensure that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities have opportunities to live, learn, work, and play in their communities. The session will discuss the need to go beyond incremental approaches and deficits-based models to embrace strengths-based approaches that emphasize supports in typical contexts and self-determination.
