  • "Hey the Tomatoes Didn't Grow, but Something Else Did!": Contesting
           

    • Authors: Rama Cousik, Heloise Maconochie
      Abstract: In this article we offer a number of empirical examples to argue that educational practices designed to provide children labeled with disabilities with a free and appropriate public education can lead to an experience of "containment." Drawing upon data from two science projects conducted with children labeled with disabilities in an elementary school in the United States we explore adults' and children's experiences of contesting containment in a special education classroom, alongside a concomitant desire to cultivate competence. Based on the work of Foucault (1977) we suggest that children with labels face a number of containment strategies including: exclusion and classification (categorizing and placing children in segregated classrooms with an alternative curriculum); individualization (Individual Education Plans); examination and assessment (measuring children's attainment against predetermined goals and tests); and control (the regulation and self-regulation of children's bodies and behaviors). Notwithstanding these disabling constraints, it is possible to move towards an approach informed by Disability Studies in Education (DSE), in which competence is cultivated through more inclusive strategies. These include positioning children as abled rather than labeled through taking a Universal Design approach to Learning (UDL); recognizing children's multimodal communicative practices; constructing learning stories as a narrative form of pedagogical documentation and assessment; valorizing the ways in which children contest containment and control through their bodily actions and child-initiated narratives; and respecting children's autonomy in the learning process.

  • Valuing Employees with Disabilities: A Chain Effect of Pro-Disability
           Climate on Organizational Commitment

    • Authors: Jenell Lynn-Senter Wittmer, Canchu Lin
      Abstract: Previous organizational research has focused heavily on organizational commitment, for employees in general, as well as for specific minority groups. However, there is a large gap in the research literature concerning the organizational commitment of people with disabilities. The current study contributes to the literature both by investigating the predictors of reported organizational commitment of people with disabilities, as well by examining organizational-level predictors, rather than individual-level phenomena. Additionally, rather than examining legal or compliance issues related to people with disabilities, as is found in most previous research, the current study examines contextual predictors of organizational commitment, pro-disability climate, pro-disability technology, and availability of flexible work arrangements. Structural equation modeling results suggest that there is a chain effect of pro-disability climate, which impacts the organizational commitment of people with disabilities through pro-disability technology and flexible work arrangements. Implications for both research and human resource practitioners are discussed.

  • Community Engagement in Health Care: An Approach to Improve Health Care
           Access for People with Disabilities

    • Authors: Dianne Sabat, Michael Richardson, Kathe F. Matrone, Darrin Umbarger, Angela Weaver
      Abstract: People with disabilities (PWD) experience significant health disparities, at least partly due to difficulties accessing health care. These difficulties are multi-focal, including difficulties with transportation, effective communication, physical accessibility, and provider attitudes. Community engagement offers one method for working with local communities around health care access for PWD. By engaging PWD and the local infrastructure (e.g., providers, government, transportation, advocates), unique solutions are generated and awareness in the community is increased. We describe the use of our approach "Community Engagement in Health Care" with one such Oregon community.

  • Relationship Depth and Associative Stigma of Disability

    • Authors: Katherine Nieweglowski, Lindsay Sheehan
      Abstract: Family, friends and acquaintances of people with disabilities may be viewed or treated differently by the public due to their association with a stigmatized person. Previous research finds that the public are more willing to engage in relationships with people with physical disability than with mental illness. In addition, attitudes towards associating with people with disabilities has been found to vary by depth of the chosen relationship. The current study sought to examine the connections between relationship depth (friend/romantic partner/acquaintance), disability type (physical/psychiatric) and associative stigma. Adult participants (N=345) were randomly presented with vignettes varying in relationship depth and disability type via an online survey platform. Analyses found no differences in associative stigma between physical and psychiatric disabilities. Participants viewed the vignette actor Rachel as socially warmer when she was a friend or romantic partner of a person with a disability than when she was an acquaintance. Participants rated Rachel as different from themselves when she was romantically involved with the person with disability and were more willing to engage socially with Rachel when she befriended the person with disability rather than when she was a mere acquaintance.
