Recording: How “Special” Education Impedes Social Justice, Mar 6, 2018

Over the past 15 years, the term “neurodiversity” has grown from a reference to the autism community, to include individuals identified as having a broad range of emotional, behavioral, learning, developmental, and intellectual disabilities. This perspective may be further extended to all aspects of cultural diversity. A distinguishing feature of functional models of disability and culture is its lack of regard for personal attributions in favor of environmental relations.
