Disablism in class
ABA has worked with Richard Reiser (World of Inclusion) to develop some materials to help challenge disablist bullying in schools. We then went to six schools (4 primary and 2 secondary schools) to test out our materials. As a result we have created six short films for schools to give you ideas about challenging disablist bullying in school. The resources used in the films are also below.
We believe that to really tackle disablist bullying, schools need to have a good understanding of the social model of disability. You can find out more about the Social Model in this video and on the World of Inclusion website.
If you use these resources please let us know how your school got on by emailing Martha Evans at email@example.com.

Case studies to use in class
This classroom resource aims to help you explain the history of disablism over the last 2,600 years. It was written by the World of Inclusion and should be used from upper primary to secondary.
Access All Areas Theatre Company, UK Disability History Month and the Open University have pulled together to create this great resource for school about teaching the history of disablism. Have a look http://www.open.ac.uk/health-and-social-care/research/shld/education-resources
