    Today on the podcast, we interview Emily Ladau, disability rights activist and author, about her new book Demystifying Disability: What to Know, What to Say, and How to Be an Ally. 

    We discuss why this book needed to be written, if there is only one model of disability that is valid, and we even play a little game called, “is it ableist?”

A Fantastic Podcast for All Educators

I am a special educator working on a state grant and am loving this podcast. I am working my way though past episodes and am constantly sharing with my consultants and the school and district administrators we support. The last episode with Katie Novak was amazing and we plan to use it for a UDL PLC in one of our districts.
