For this third installment of the NACCM Book/Media Club webinar series, we bring you: a movie! Grab some popcorn, queue up Netflix and watch “Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution” — and then make plans to join us November 12th for a timely and informative discussion. What is “disability,” and what is it not? The Netflix original documentary follows the lives of several young campers with disabilities at Camp Jened in New York State who became leaders in the U.S. disability rights movement of the 1970s. Disability services expert Abby Kovalsky, LCSW will help us view disability from a historical perspective, and review the laws and language of the current paradigms. Learn what is needed to work effectively with individuals and families who live with disability related issues, and how aging with a disability is different from aging into a disability.
The goal of this event is to help Care Managers understand what disability is in the context of our current society and to be better able to work with people with disabilities.
After this presentation, attendees will be able to:
- define disability
- state the 3 models of disability and what each means
- state the defining legislation affecting this population
- state at least 3 ways people with disabilities are discriminated against
