Inclusion and Social Justice Conference

Disability Awareness Educational Resource

Here are common dilemmas educators face in relation to addressing diversity and developing knowledge and confidence for their students on issues that they may themselves be uncertain about, but can be underpinning reasons for marginalisation and bullying of the potentially most vulnerable.

-How do I speak to my students and pupils about disability?
-What is the right terminology and how can I fit it within an inclusion friendly curriculum?
-How can I support a culture of reasonable adjustments for disabled students?

One way to approach difficult subjects is through real-life examples; Kingston University students played a vital role in a pioneering Heritage Lottery Funded initiative led by KCIL (2016-18) sharing the stories of the local borough residents who have helped make history, as part of the Disability Rights Movement. Student nurses and teachers from the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education, run jointly by Kingston University and St George's, University of London joined forces to take part in the ‘Fighting for our Rights' project and created amongst other outputs a Disability Awareness Education Resource.
