This training, by Amanda Kraus with live Q&A following the presentation, will analyze how people commonly frame disability in society and examine how these frames influence professional practice. The presentation will discuss language, media and design and the power of each to shape the disability experience.

Kraus is also adjunct faculty in the Center for the Study of Higher Education, where she instructs graduate courses on student development, student services and disability in higher education.
