Webinar - 'Reframing Disability: Implications for Creating Accessible and Inclusive Communities'

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.

Amanda Kraus serves as assistant director and director of the Disabled Veterans Reintegration and Education Project at the University of Arizona Disability Resource Center. 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. Her research focuses on the disability identity in a context of higher education and the experience of disability for student veterans. Kraus has presented at numerous national conferences and will be published in New Directions for Student Services (spring/summer 2012) and the Handbook on Veterans in Higher Education (fall 2012).
