I wrote this for a college presentation to professors at Metro Denver. Over time, I expanded it to include the social history of the Disability Rights movement. It includes the dark history of the eugenics movement around the world, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and other historic figures in the Disability rights movement.
It covers basic accommodation for a wide verity of disabilities, and is written by a person with a disability! I have Non Verbal Learning Disorder and disgraphia, which is part of Autism spectrum disorders. I grew up understanding how the SpEd Process works, and what does not work in the classroom.
If there are any questions, please feel free to email me. I enjoy educating the public about NVLD / NLD, and will be happy to answer any questions about this work.
