Course Overview

This course examines the evolution and current issues affecting persons with disabilities - the largest minority population in the United States. It includes changes in disability models and societal perceptions across time; disparities in access to education, employment, health care, transportation, and housing; and an evaluation of public spaces using ADA criteria.Emphasis will be placed on discussion of topics that affect persons with disabilities differently than persons without disabilities such as domestic violence and emergency preparedness. National and international perspectives and policies will be examined to determine their effectiveness on decreasing disparities, increasing access, and enabling participation.
