Neurodiversity within Campus Coordinated Community Response Team Efforts will introduce audiences to the “Neurodiversity Paradigm” while drawing on disability justice principles, the work of autistic liberation activists, and lived experience. With a foundation of historical, modern, and linguistic context, we will dive into how systemic ableism shows up on college campuses for students, faculty, and staff, as well as within domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking cases. This webinar will actively challenge the “Pathological Paradigm” which dominates conversations about autism, ADHD, and other learning disabilities. We will explore strategies to challenge systemic ableism and facilitate inclusive spaces within your Campus Coordinated Community Response Team.
A distinctly anti-oppression and intersectional perspective make this training suitable for anyone with any level of personal or professional experience with neurodivergence.
