This session will offer an introduction to critical disability studies and its practical implications for arts education. The presenter will distinguish between the medical, social, affirmative, and political/relational models of disability with a focus on what each might offer practicing arts teachers supporting students with disabilities in their classrooms. Participants will learn practical strategies to create environments that en-able rather than dis-able their students and explore considerations for the design of arts learning experiences that are accessible, inclusive, and just.
