Teaching About Disabilities in Early Childhood

  • National Museum of African American History and Culture 1400 Constitution Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20560 United States (map)

This session for early childhood educators (serving students ages 0-8), hosted by Teaching for Change's D.C. Area Educators for Social Justice, will explore ways teach about disabilities, including visible and invisible disabilities. Participants will explore a multitude of book titles and teaching resources.

Many teachers face either the pressures to avoid difficult topics or to plunge in with little consideration of what is best for children at each stage of their development. This session will be a time for teachers to explore and discuss these issues surrounded by children's books at the National Museum of African American History and Culture (1400 Constitution Ave NW). A representative from DCPS’ Early Stages will be in attendance.

Advance registration required.
