Course Description

EDUC 349
Perspectives on Disability, Inclusion, and Assessment

This course uses a Disability Studies framework to explore the social, political, historical, cultural, and educational contexts of disability and special education both nationally and in California. Students will explore how disability is both constructed and reclaimed as well as the material realities connected to disability. Students will take a capacity-oriented approach to examine the history of special education, legislation and litigation that have influenced the field, referral and assessment processes, various models of service delivery, and attitudes toward people with disabilities.
