NEU Disability Resources

The NEU is committed to promoting disability inclusion in our workplaces and communities.

At NEU Conference 2021, delegates agreed to

  • Develop and promote resources  to support schools to develop diverse, inclusive learning opportunities for learners which are embedded across the curriculum.   
  • Campaign for a diverse, inclusive curriculum which meets the needs of all students and young people, such actions could include organised mass lobbying of MPs. 
  • Continue to campaign to challenge the systems of accountability and assessment which prevent educators from meeting the needs of the young people they teach

This page is dedicated to resources which challenge stereotypes and prejudices about disability.

We will use this page to host links to resources for educators to use in schools. These are resources that have been recommended to us by our members or produced by them.

Please use your professional judgement to adapt any resources to suit your classes and the context in which you teach.
