Covert (and Overt) Attitudes Toward Disability

This webinar discussed the importance of ‘attitudes’ toward children, youth and adults who live with impairments in physical and/or cognitive function. ‘Attitudes’ toward people with disabilities reflect ‘worthiness’ and this principle not only guides clinical decision-making, but allocation of limited and often scarce resources. Shifting attitudes requires champions that challenge taken-for-granted assumptions about worthiness of their lives.
