I’d like to hear the types of initiatives occurring to make continuing education more accessible to adults with a range of disabilities.

I am both an adult educator and a nascent doctoral student. I am particularly interested in inclusion, from my own experience as a black educator and student who has always felt isolated in school and in the workplace, and seeing how my current learners feel excluded if they have learning differences. I think I do a good job, but want more support and information on how to do so

I taught an adult learning workshop recently and had a participant ask me about how to better include adult learners with disabilities and wanted a resource to address this.

I was drawn to this webinar because I work predominently with emerging adults who are high acheivers, but also need support for emotional, social, psychological, and physical disabilities. Previously, I worked in social services with homeless and insecurely housed women-many of whom had physical limitations or chronic illnesses. I am a current master's student in adult education.

I'm an Academic Adviser for Penn State World Campus, I'm interested in leanring about resources available to students with disabilities
JPB

Oh they're answering my question, cool. :)
cmklein

In my past experience, support and resources for students with disabilities has been perceived as preferential treatment by other students-especially those invisible disabilities. What are some way to maintain privacy of the disabled student while also not creating tension in the learning environment?
JPB
33:39
Yes, my wife has an AI issue, so I know that well.
Holly McCracken

I think you make an excellent point. “Having a disability” is often viewed as something that happens to

This sounds a bit similar to "nudges" that are shown to be useful, if anyone is familiar

Although online classes can be more challenging in some ways, they also offer so many opportunties to support students.
jinheechoi
42:19
Yes, cmklein. Some students (my phd colleague) said online class is more accessible because of flexibility and text based course offerings.
Tulare Park

What suggestions would you give for working with faculty/instructors who feel that accommodations are preferential treatment?
cmklein

preferential - oops

K-12 - law is IDEA - school is responsible for accommodations

higher ed - law is ADA - student is responsible for self-disclosing
