Presenter: Peter Blanck, Ph.D., J.D.
Dr. Blanck is University Professor at Syracuse University, which is the highest faculty rank granted to eight prior individuals in the history of the University. He is also Chairman of the Burton Blatt Institute.
Description: As people, we strive to have the authority to self-govern our lives and navigate the path toward our futures. For people with disabilities, this isnít always the case. There are many laws that shape the public discourse on the civil rights of people who have disabilities. His dynamic seminar will examine modern disability law and policy and the advancement of the fundamental rights people with disabilities have to fully participate in society. The seminar will also explore the disability rights movement and discuss current trends like Supported Decision Making (SDM), a process that empowers people to make life decisions with the help of friends, family members and trusted professionals.
- Learners will become familiar with the body of study on the efficacy of SDM as a fundamental human right.
- Learners will have a deeper understanding of disability law and policy to advocate for the fundamental rights of people with disabilities to have full and equal participation in society.
