Disability History Week

Disability History Week
October 9-13, 2017


SCUSD is proud to be honoring and celebrating Disability History Week.

Disability History Week is about educating youth with and without disabilities on the many contributions people with disabilities have made throughout American History.

Sign the Pledge Card

During Disability History Week we ask that you sign our pledge to respect each person’s identity and promote the inclusion of people of all abilities. 

Pledge Card

One way to do this is by using person-first language.  By placing the person first, the disability is no longer the primary, defining characteristic of an individual, but one of several aspects of the whole person.
