Facilitation of Inclusion When Students Manifest Verbal and Expression Differences
Date & Time
Thursday, March 30, 2023, 3:15 PM - 4:15 PM

The facilitation of inclusion and equity constitutes a perennial social justice mission, a point underscored for students with expression and verbal differences, whether documented or differences which do not fit DSM categories. These students may not express inclusion needs or may express indirectly without clarity. Students need not self-advocate when needs are apparent, but may face self-advocacy challenges when needs are not obvious. Who are these students with expression differences, what are some common issues, and how can faculty and staff assist with the facilitation of inclusion and equity needs? This interactive presentation will address these questions and discuss developing awareness of this growing student subset to remain mindful of their inclusion needs, albeit unexpressed or indirectly indicated, and will focus on engagement and advocacy strategies to move towards improved inclusion and equity. Scenarios will be presented for attendee input of best practices with this population.
