KSR 537 - Integrating Disability Perspectives into APA Practice

3 units (fi 6)(EITHER, 3-0-0)

Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation

Disability-affirming practice requires an engagement with knowledges produced by thinkers and leaders who experience disability, as well as an understanding of the immense diversity of disability experience. Course participants will learn about how scholars, activists, and self-advocacy leaders who self-identify as Deaf, disabled, Mad, sick, and neurodivergent conceptualize their own bodies, minds, lives, and physical activities of meaning. Emphasis will be placed on how disabled and neurodivergent people's lives are always impacted by equity issues relating to culture, religion, Indigeneity, race, gender, sexuality, newcomer status, class, and caste.
