Deconstructing the Diversity-Disability Connection
Examines connections between diversity and disability in special education, noting increasing tendencies to locate special education under the umbrella of diversity. The paper maintains that the assumptions underlying disability are dramatically different from those supporting diversity and suggests that special educators transform their traditional advocacy to a broad sociocultural framework.
