Disability History Timeline: Resource and Discussion Guide

Briefly describe the activity and its purpose.

Although it was designed for youth and emerging leaders with disabilities, the Disability History Timeline and related activities can be used to educate a broader audience. Trainees may be assigned to read through this timeline and complete the three discussion worksheets (included at the end of the linked .pdf document) either alone or in small groups.

What are the expected learning outcomes for trainees?

The goal is to help users understand the history of the disability field and self-advocacy movement, influential people in disability history, and significant events that had an impact on the way disability has been viewed over time.
