Reflection: Think back to when you were a child/teen. What do you feel you were taught about how “visible” a person with a disability should be? Remember, being taught can be with words or actions. If you were not taught with words, what did you understand about how visible a person with a disability should be? Was it acceptable to look at the person directly? Did you know or interact with anyone with a disability?

and respond to it in the following manner:
State the point.
Example Give an example of how this could be used in your classroom (do not use given examples)
