Spring 2024 SOWK 322 Week 05 - Stages of Acceptance of a Learning Disability

A presentation at Heritage University at CBC Week 05 in in Pasco, WA 99301, USA by Jacob Campbell

In week five, we start engaging with the lived experience of persons with disabilities. My lecture video discusses the stages of acceptance of a learning disability (Higgins et al., 2002). Rothman (2018) provides several impactful personal accounts of people with disabilities sharing about the start of their disability, how it progresses, and some of the consequences. During this unit, you will learn the following:

  • Identify different time periods in which disability can begin
  • Identify variations in the course of the progression of disability
  • Identify outcomes associated with disability
  • Identify supports that might be available at all stages of onset, course, and outcome
