Welcome to the Unit on the Value of People with Disability, where we embark on a comprehensive exploration of concepts related to disability, fostering a nuanced understanding of this multifaceted subject. In Part I, our journey begins with a presentation that unravels the intricacies of disability, providing a foundational knowledge base. Accompanying this, a carefully curated set of reading materials will enrich your insights, offering a deeper exploration into the diverse aspects of living with a disability.

As we transition into Part II, our focus extends to the intersectionality of disability with gender. Building upon the presentation, this section delves into the unique challenges faced by individuals navigating the intricate dynamics of both disability and gender. To further illuminate these experiences, we incorporate online videos featuring firsthand accounts from individuals with disabilities, offering invaluable perspectives that transcend conventional narratives.

Moreover, this unit invites you to appreciate the transformative power of dance as an inclusive art form. Challenge preconceptions and witness the elevation of dance through performances by individuals with disabilities.
