We will address how to focus on learner abilities, promote inclusion, and value difference when working with adult learners with disabilities who are often excluded from educational, employment, and social opportunities because they are viewed from a deficit perspective.

We will discuss the lack of adult education discourse on adults with disabilities despite their presence in all aspects of adult education. Sharing the experiences of adult learners with disabilities will be one facet of the discussion, with the goal of encouraging participants to become proactive educators who seek ways to help adults with disabilities succeed.

The complexity of disclosure decisions and the relational nature of disability will both be discussed. Participants will also be invited to raise topics of personal interest in a welcoming environment that may lead to resources and possible practical solutions offered by the moderator and attendees.

We look forward to sharing our experience and ideas with you.
