This workshop, part of a series about self-advocacy skills, disability related self-advocacy on a university campus. You will learn some basic background information on self-advocacy, participate in skill building activities, and learn what some disabled students at McMaster have to say on the subject. The workshop has been designed and will be facilitated by a disabled student. We take an inclusive view of disability, and no attendee will be asked to disclose how they identify (e.g. those registered or not registered with Student Accessibility Services; those with physical, sensory, learning, developmental, mental health or other disabilities; those with mental health concerns; those identifying as Mad, Deaf, living with chronic illness, trauma, or addiction, etc.).
This workshop of is part of a project through the MacPherson Insitute: “Politicizing Self-Advocacy: Improving Access to Learning Through Disabled Student Workshops”.
