Here are details to bear in mind if you plan to send us teaching material to be considered for publication on the Disabled Access Friendly site.
We know it can be daunting to write a lesson plan on a subject you know little about. Where do you get information? Where do you get inspiration? So here’s a helping hand.
We suggest you take a look at the existing lesson plans and graded reading texts on our site. These will help you get a broad picture of the kind of issues your worksheet could cover.
You might like to consider the following topics:
Physical barriers for people with mobility disability
Behaviour and attitudes towards people with mobility disability
Stereotyping of people with mobility disability
Think about how often you come across someone with a mobility disability in films, books or on TV in an ordinary role where their disability is irrelevant to the story line.
Language used to talk about mobility disability
We also suggest you look on the internet at articles written on disability issues, and at relevant sites and blogs such as New Mobility and the BBC’s Ouch. Many disability related sites are listed here.
