“The Disability Pride MU day on April 16th was indeed a day to remember. Students grew that day in ways that will inform the future as they progress to lives and careers. I look forward to our faculty collaborating in the future for Disability Pride MU II.”

“I want to personally thank you for collaborating with our faculty, staff, dining services, facilities personnel, and university police in order to make the event a success. The MU College of Education and Human Services is committed to building and sustaining a diverse and hospitable campus environment. The Disability Pride MU day contributed to that vision and moves us closer to our desired goals. I look forward to events such as this becoming an annual opportunity for learning and growth.”
Disability Pride Day was just awesome! It was great to meet new friends and celebrate disability!
Disability Across the Rainbow Workshop highlighted various barriers for LGBTQIA+ groups and disabled people. I would change nothing, it was great!
Regarding Disability Pride MU Workshops: The discussion in groups were great. I got to learn more about others and the Disability Rights Movement. I love that I could speak on this topic and uplift it. Not a lot of people care to talk about these topics. I love this environment.
“How to Talk to Kids about Disability” Workshop
We collaborated with Disability Equality in Education to put on a workshop called “How to Talk to Kids About Disability”. We received feedback from parents and caregivers that the presentations were informative, empowering and effective. The children participated in so many fun activities led by DEE including books normalizing disability, lesson plans, coloring pages, free play with toys featuring disabilities, exploration of adaptive equipment, and an accessibility audit of the building for the older kids. The families reported that their children had so much fun and constructive positive discussions were sparked about disabilities at home. We couldn’t have hoped for a better workshop and there has been interest for another one! Many thanks to Disability Equality in Education for the very important (and very FUN) work that you do!
