Session: Disability Studies & Inclusion: Breaking Down Barriers

Disability studies offer a rich and multifaceted approach; exploring discrimination, human rights and inclusive education. To foster the promotion of greater equality in education, this presentation will explore the potential for an Introduction to Disability Studies course that may one day be included in public school classrooms.

Michael Baker is a graduate student at the University of Manitoba who is currently completing his master’s thesis in inclusive education, which is entitled Multi-Sensory Environments: A Qualitative Exploration.
