International Day of People with a Disability

International Day of People with a Disability | Inclusive education | Scoop.it
Jo Holland's insight:
Today is International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD). A day to celebrate the fantastic contribution people with disability make to Australia. IDPwD aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate the achievements and contributions of people with disability. The Australian Government has been supporting IDPwD since 1996 and provides funds to promote and raise awareness of the day around Australia. It is an opportunity for the community to make positive changes to the lives of 4 million Australians. Go to www.idpwd.com.au to find out what celebrations are happening in your area.

ABC iview : You Can't Ask That - Transgender | Inclusive education | Scoop.it
You Can't Ask That - Transgender : You Can't Ask That will give the public a chance to ask the awkward, embarrassing, naive, funny, silly, compassionate, even prejudiced questions they've always wanted to ask, but never had the courage or proximity to do so.

westsydublt's curator insight, August 23, 12:44 AM
discrimination is not always deliberate. we live in a world populated by a wonderfully diverse range of people, and you may want to design learning experiences for all of them :-) "You Can't Ask That" is a funny, respectful space for hearing the kinds of questions that we may feel we can't ask, and the beautiful responses from the people of whom we don't ask them. in this #wearitpurple week, maybe start with #transgender #ally #udl #accessibility #inclusion #illridewithyou #equity #diversity #peace
