Distinguished Lecture (Teaching Preconference)

We Need to Teach About Disability as Diversity in Psychology
Kathleen Bogart
People with disabilities represent 15% of the world’s population, yet this common minority group is underrepresented in psychology curricula. I will present emerging scholarship on disability as a social identity. This call to action will conclude with practical strategies to include disability topics—and disabled students—in our courses.
