Before beginning your assignment, review the following article:
Then—before you start write out your initial post—do the following exercise:
Write a disability on a separate sheet of paper. You can use anything as an example: a visible disability (immobility, for example) or an invisible disability (such as Asperger’s).
Next, write out everything that comes to mind regarding stereotypes for this disability. If you can, try to also include some idea of how you came to know the stereotype(s).
Then, come up with some activities you have experienced at your job (past, present, imagined) such as a general workshop of any kind, company picnic, or even something casually organized like getting together for a social event after work.
