Our country is still reeling from the twin pandemics – coronavirus and racial reckoning. Furthermore, these dual pandemics have significantly impacted children with disabilities, especially Black and Brown children. In this paradigm-shifting webinar Dr. Iheoma Iruka will help you examine the historical and contemporary impact of racism on early intervention and special education access, services, and outcomes. You will learn to incorporate an intersectionality lens that examines equity through a race and ability equity lens to dismantle racism and other systemic barriers and ensure equitable opportunities.
Advancing equity means using an intersectionality lens that simultaneously considers multiple marginalized identities.
Join us to:
- Understand racial disparities in early intervention identification/special education and support
- Examine the importance of intersectionality when examining issues of race, poverty, and ability
- Identify approaches to address disparities in early intervention/special education
All sessions are 1.5 hours long and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
2:oo PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Time.
