Developmental Disabilities: A Teaching Resource Web Kit

Developmental Disabilities: A Teaching Resource Web Kit

The focus of this project is development of a values based curriculum in developmental disabilities for Baccalaureate Social Work (BSW) students. The overall goal is to develop and compile curriculum materials related to developmental disabilities and to disseminate these materials to BSW faculty across the state to integrate into courses. These materials will also be available to faculty in other disciplines and outside the State as appropriate and within budgetary constraints. A secondary goal is to foster and reinforce a commitment to developmental disabilities within the schools of social work.

I was a consultant on this project. It provides a good sampling of resources to frame discussions and classroom activities concerning disabilities. Many of the entries (including material from my textbook) assume a social constrictionist/systems perspective on disability related impairment. Conventional assumptions about disability are challenged.

Technical Remarks:

Easily accessed, ready to use material and plentiful links to other resources.
