FALL 2021 SESSIONS

300th DDLS Session
Friday, October 1, 2021 l 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM l Webinar

The Movement for Disability Rights: Perspectives Across Generations


The movement for disability rights was created and fueled by the activism of people with disabilities, families, and allies. This conversation with two nationally recognized disability leaders will capture their individual and collective experience extending from before Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act in 1974, through the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990, and the continuing struggle to realize the rights of people with disabilities. Sharing their perspectives as activists from different generations, the session will highlight their roles and contributions, explore the impact of policy changes on their lives, continued challenges, and their vision for the future.

Technology Solutions for Community Living


The digital age has transformed how we live, work, and play. However, people with ID/DD
and their families continue to fight for technological equity and access as the digital disability
divide widens. It is time to reimagine community living in light of the digital age and modernize
expectations, policies, practices, and products. This presentation will focus on technological
disruption and how the disability community can take advantage of new opportunities to advance
tech-living and drive innovation.

Supporting Self-Determination Across the Life Course


Supporting self-determination across the life course is a key goal of disability supports and
services. This presentation will share strategies to remove systemic barriers to self-determination
and support people with disabilities across the life course to act as causal agents over their
lives. Effective assessment and intervention approaches will be described with an emphasis on
partnering with people with disabilities and supporters in the community to achieve this vision.
