Disability Equality in Education (DEE) is looking for skillful teachers who are willing to lend their time and creativity to our cause. DEE is funded by the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council to reduce the stigma in schools put on students with disabilities. One of the most effective ways for us to make an impact on schools is by making lesson plans for teachers to use that are created from a disability perspective. We create lesson plans for all different grades and subjects, so whatever you teach, we would appreciate your help. If you want to lend us a hand, we would be happy to teach you about the perspective we are hoping to bring into the classroom, and how your expertise can help.

Mission Statement

We are Disability Equality in Education (DEE), supported by a grant from the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council. DEE began operations in July 2017. As a truly grassroots effort, all leadership of DEE are people with disabilities (both invisible and physical) and we rely on a network of volunteers who are people with disabilities and allies. DEE is affiliated with Disabled in Action (DIA). DIA is a civil rights organization committed to ending discrimination against people with disabilities. We embody the phrase "Nothing about us, without us" in the work we do with schools and colleges.

Description

Dee is focused on creating a curriculum for K-12 schools that helps to reduce disability stigma in Pennsylvania. We have created a disability comprehensive curriculum lesson plan library on our website. This is a resource for teachers to explore disability in multiple contexts (history, math, science and social studies) in the classroom. Our lessons and associated resources are informed by the Social Model of Disability Our focus with education is to normalize the idea of disability with all students. These lesson plans are there for any teacher to use, and they are created by disability community members, teachers, or former teachers.
