Including a Co-Teacher with an Intellectual Disability in a University Class: Meet Justice and John June 3, 2024 at 10:30 am

There is not a lot of research on this subject but we are going to highlight feedback from our students both formally and informally that will demonstrate how Justice has had a positive impact on the class.

Key Learning Outcomes

1. Participants will be encouraged to think outside-the-box in what kinds of jobs people with intellectual disabilities can do during work transition programs and beyond.
2. Participants will learn specific strategies on how to co-teach with someone with an intellectual disability in a university setting.
3. Participants will understand that including a co-teacher with an intellectual disability helps the teacher with ID learn valuable work and leadership skills while also helping to enrich the classroom and give the students direct access to the lived disability experience.
