Got a flexion contracture of the proximal interphalangeal joint? My friend invented a device that can restore your finger’s range of extension.
I updated “Disclosing You’re Neurodivergent at Work” with a selection from “Neurodiversity: Paving the Way to Universal Design Inclusivity in the Workplace”.
As I’ve witnessed, the opposite approach to universal design inclusivity leads to the likelihood of increased segregation, such as the implementation of entirely separate hiring processes for job candidates who have a specific neurological difference. Neurodiversity isn’t meant to be a means of setting individuals apart. Siphoning a member of a marginalized community into a separate process leads to discrimination. Imagine if we encouraged all women to go through a segregated hiring program! It’s easy to see the problems with such an approach — and the benefits that universal design inclusivity can bring in its stead.
I updated “Just Sayin’” with a selection from “Stop Gaslighting The Left About Evangelicals. They Believe Awful Things About Jews – The Forward”.
Fostering healthy pluralism, which democracy demands, means confronting intolerance.
Inclusion is not a favor that adults do for disabled kids, but both an ethical obligation and a legal right owed to all children.
Hyperlexia + autism has set me up for a lifetime of being broadly incomprehensible.
I’m catching up on Elon Musk’s SNL appearance. So, he erroneously claims to be the first autistic on SNL and then uses autism to excuse his ignorance and bigotry? He follows that up with okay signs. What a hate-fueling, edgelord asshole.
You’re not full-stack if you neglect your MESH education.
I just voted in the @DSISD school board elections to help keep Christofascists at bay. They never stop attacking science & pluralism.
Embracing pluralism is good citizenship. Public schools are front lines in the battle for pluralism against the outrage of bigots. Vote.
The candidates for @DSISD board of trustees are some incumbents (who defended a transgender student), several Christofascists, and an Apple engineer who says “diversity, equity, and inclusion are crucially important.” Easy choices.
So, the Oscars changed the format to announce a presumed Boseman win that didn’t happen whilst denying accessibility to Hopkins, dissing two disability icons at once and setting up its own abrupt ending?
