Respect Values

  • Remember the community values we created in order to retain our safe space

Learning Outcomes

  • Increase Awareness of how oneself is affected by ableism in daily life

  • Understand Temporarily Able Bodied privilege

Learning Outcomes Cont’d

  • Recognize the range of how others experience ableism

  • Discuss ways to be an ally to people who are differently abled


  • Also known as Disability Oppression

  • A pervasive system of discrimination and exclusion of people who are differently abled>>Examples of these are visible and invisible: Physical, Mental, Emotional differences

Temporarily Able Bodied (TAB)

  • Refers to people who are not differently abled, but recognizes that most of us may become differently abled at some point in our lives

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

  • A federal law passed in 1990 that requires public institutions to provide access to people who are differently abled


  • Brief, everyday exchanges that send denigrating messages to certain individuals because of their group membership


  • An ally is typically a member of advantaged social groups who uses social power to take a stand against social injustice directed at targeted groups.

  • An ally works to be an agent of social change rather than an agent of oppression.

Activity: Image Theater

  • Groups of 3-5

  • Discuss with your group an event or situation around ableism that you will focus on.

  • Create a “talking picture” with your group, in which each person poses as they are able, to create a small scene that relates the situation you chose.

Activity Cont’d

  • In addition to the pose you choose, each person will create one word or phrase that describes how their character is feeling

  • A facilitator will tap on each person’s shoulder (one at a time), and the person who is being tapped will repeat their word or phrase

    Note: if you are uncomfortable being touched please let one of us know once you are in your small group

Activity Example

  • In awareness of those with learning differences, Sabrina, Kalina, and Josh will provide a visual example of what this activity may look like.
