What can I/ we do? How can I/ we help? Helping people with disabilities is and should be a humanitarian act, to begin with. Providing fair and just treatment and the same opportunity and access to those who are at a disadvantage physically and academically should be normal behavior for us all, however, sometimes a legal mandate is needed to spurn people into action. So as educators we have to be mindful of this in our classrooms. We (educators and administrators) have to make sure that we provide access for our disabled students to the accommodations that make a "level playing field" for them.
