Disability Awareness Speaker Series

The Texas Center for Disability Studies is collaborating with the Steve Hicks School of Social Work and Services for Students with Disabilities to provide a speaker series during October 2017 Disability Awareness Month.

A series of four speakers will present on different topics related to disability. Light refreshments will be abailable after the event and this series is free to all.

The goal of this event is to provide awareness on different topics and their intersection with disability from a social constructivist perspective. The social model of disability is caused by the way society is organized, rather than by a person’s impairment or difference. It looks at ways of removing barriers that restrict life choices for people with disabilities.
