EDUC 389P/589P: Healthy Environments and Inclusive Education in a Global Society

This course provides students with skills required to work effectively with the families of children and youth with disabilities and with the network of service providers and community agencies with which these families interact. The course uses a disability studies lens, focusing on a strengths-based understanding of families and the influence of social and cultural factors on the lived experience of disability. Students will get an opportunity to learn and apply these skills within an international context, by meeting families and visiting schools and agencies serving children and young adults with disabilities in Cambodia.
