By including the perspectives of people with diverse abilities, we can create affirming learning spaces that reject ableism. Changing the learning environment to be more inclusive—instead of a focus on changing the learner—provides opportunities for accessible education practices that benefit all young people. Our resources can help young people embrace diverse abilities and understand the injustices people with disabilities often encounter.

“Disability is the way other people don’t accommodate you or respond to you.”
