National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)

Disability: Part of the Equity Equation

Metropolitan Community College is proud to support National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). Held each October, NDEAM aims to educate about disability employment issues and celebrate the many and varied contributions of America's workers with disabilities. Throughout the month, we'll be engaging in a variety of activities to educate our community on disability employment issues and the role they play in fostering an equitable and inclusive work culture.

Upcoming Events

October 2024 Events will be posted in mid-September.

Disability Employment Awareness Resources

The following points should be considered when working with students with a disability:

  • Students with disability may also be gifted and talented and/or have English as an additional language and/or dialect. In some instances, a student may require support in more than one element of diversity
  • Students with disability can achieve educational standards commensurate with their peers
  • Students with disability who require adjustment/s to one learning area may not require the same adjustment/s to another learning area
  • Not all students with a disability require adjustments to all dimensions of the curriculum
  • Students with the same category of disability do not always require the same adjustments
  • Students with disability may require different levels of adjustment over time to reach their potential
  • Ongoing formative assessment, particularly pre-assessment, is critical to ensure that learning area content and adjustments align with student needs.
