Session materials from "What's Disability Got To Do With It?," which was led by Layla Oghabian (NASCO Board and Berkeley Student Cooperative) at NASCO Institute 2014.
This workshop will begin with a brief introduction to the Disability Rights Movement and an examination current federal laws and regulations that protect the rights of people with disabilities. It will then transition into common barriers encountered by people with disabilities and common myths about disability access. By way of discussion and Socratic methods participants will unveil discrepancies and barriers within their own student cooperative. This foundation will help to provide the tools and resources necessary to become an effective advocate on behalf of people with disabilities within your student cooperative, university and in society alike.
