True Vision Does Not Require Sight: Teaching (Undocumented) Students With Disabilities
Luke LeFebvre (University of Kentucky, USA) and Gustavo Covarrubias Garcia (Blind Center of Nevada, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-9000-3.ch010
This chapter presents a co-narration about our journey together as teacher and learner—a student with disabilities (and being undocumented) and a non-disabled instructor—to navigate the social barriers present at institutions of higher education. The authors' experiences provide contextual information related to social disability by exploring our lived experiences while attempting to navigate a combination of structural, environmental, and attitudinal barriers at an institution of higher education. These shared experiences formed our interactions both in and beyond the classroom as we worked together to overcome these learning barriers. The authors conclude their narratives by offering suggestions for how institutions of higher education should work to remove these barriers to support student learning more equitably for students with disabilities.
