Event Description

We are delighted to welcome Dr Emily Robinson to deliver this virtual session. After completing a PhD in Chemistry Emily became a Chemistry teacher at the High School of Dundee. She has been involved in Staff Wellbeing and is now aiming to help the school become more accessible.  

In conversations about equality, diversity and inclusion the disabled experience is often lost, despite disabled people being 15% of the population. As a disabled teacher, I feel there is a gap in schools' understanding of disability in the wider school community. Bringing together a wide range of disabled experiences, this session will give you the knowledge and understanding to help you be more disability aware and give you practical suggestions to improve the disabled experience in your school community. 

The aims of this session are:

  • To help you understand disability more and become confident in having discussions about the needs of disabled people.
  • To give you the tools to make schools more inclusive environments for disabled staff, students and their families.
  • To discuss practical accessibility suggestions, and to help you understand the barriers disabled people face when asking for adjustments.
  • To understand ableism and how this impacts disabled people.
