This course examines social change in terms of disability rights movements. It looks at innovative, contemporary as well as historic approaches of social change in the community and within wide-ranging institutions within the disability rights movement in a Canadian context. A specific focus is on daily and institutional sites where disability is visible including particular federal and provincial policies, social service provision and programming, and regulated local and community-based responses. Regional variations of social change within a Canadian context are fully explored. This online course is of particular interest to people with disabilities, people with interest in providing disability services, educators, caregivers, therapists, and all people with an interest in disability issues.
