Changing How To View People with Disabilities
On this episode, we are talking about disability and practice with Shay Erlich. who has just completed her Masters in Child and Youth Care at Ryerson University. Shay talks about some of the gaps and challenges faced by young people with disabilities and the unique culture within the deaf community. Shay discusses the need for CYCs to take into consideration accessibility needs of individuals and the importance of including young people’s voices in the conversation around their accommodations. Shay also talks about how a CYC practitioner, who themselves has a disability, can impact the relationship between the young person and the practitioner.
