myth buster Myth: The lives of people with disabilities are totally different than the lives of people without disabilities.Fact: People with disabilities and people without disabilities doing the same things such as do go to school, fall in love, get married, work, have families, do laundry, grocery shop, laugh, cry, pay taxes, get angry, have prejudices, vote, plan and dream like everyone else.Myth buster PresentationThis assignment asks you to apply course content to everyday life by creating an eight to ten-minute presentation designed to address and dispel a common myth about disability or disabled people. For example, the idea that disability is a tragedy, that disabled students belong in ‘special’ classes or schools, that the ADA ‘solves the problem’ for disabled people, that disabled people have poor quality of life, that disabled people do not desire intimate relationships or cannot be ‘good’ parents. Your presentation may incorporate audio, visual, multimedia. For accessibility, any visual content (including text on slides) must have verbal explanations/descriptions. Your presentation should target a specific audience (ex: teachers, movie theatre managers, baristas, expectant parents).
