Event Details

"The Texas Center for Disability Studies engages in a variety of system and individual interventions to promote the independence, productivity, integration, and inclusion of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.

Disability Studies is a relatively new, interdisciplinary field focused on the social and cultural context of disability... this field considers disability as a social minority group with an emphasis on the way in which disability is constructed culturally, politically, and economically, rather than the traditional emphasis on the physiology of impairment.

The Center strives to provide community services that provide training or technical assistance for individuals with developmental disabilities, their families, professionals, para-professionals, policy-makers, students, and other members of the community. It works to provide services, supports, and assistance for people with disabilities and their families to promote their independence, productivity, integration, and inclusion."
