In 2024, college students are more likely than ever to be diagnosed with anxiety and depression, and deal with the impact of trauma. Many students are neurodivergent, and/or have a variety of disabilities including so-called invisible disabilities such as learning and language disorders. Students facing barriers to access may or may not have documentation that makes them eligible for accommodations through the Student Access Center; accommodations available through the SAC may not be equally helpful to every student in need. In addition, COVID-19 and other illnesses continue to impact the campus, causing students to miss classes and fall behind. 


In this workshop, a group of faculty and staff at the forefront of inclusive practices at KU will share our innovations and approaches to disability and neurodivergence inclusion and trauma-informed pedagogy. We will engage in dialogue across disciplines, and discuss what worked and what did not work as well. This workshop paves the way to a yearlong seminar on disability and neurodivergence inclusion which we hope to offer through CTE in AY 24-25. 


 With Dea Follmer, CTE/Psychology; Megan Kaminski, English/Environmental Studies; and RB Perelmutter, Jewish Studies/ Slavic & Eurasian Languages & Literatures.
