DIS 110 Community, Culture and Global Perspectives on Disability

Course Description: This course will explore ways in which cultural and community perspectives influence perceptions of ability and disability in the United States and abroad. Participants will trace the disability rights movement as it has emerged, as well as consider the degree to which the community supports quality of life for persons across a broad range of disabilities. Participants will analyze the impact of legislation on the quality of life of persons with disability, in the context of culture and community. Four classes will be held in face-to-face sessions, interspersed with interactive, on-line learning experiences.
