Inspired by the guidelines of the Universal Design for Learning (CAST, 2018), "Universal Latin Fables" wants to give the opportunity to discover Phaedrus' fables to as many students as possible. The web-site uses storytelling process based entirely on the Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). Not only does it make the reading process easier, but it also allows autism spectrum students to understand the fable on several levels.
To whom it turns?
This website uses the OpenDyslexic font in order to increase readability.
All the fables can be read using Alternative and Augmentative Communication and PECS symbols offered by SymWriter, specific for autistic people but usable by everyone.
The "Listen" step can be useful to blind students. Furthermore, the website is responsive and the text is scalable.
The "Watch" and the "Read" step can be useful to deaf students.
The website is designed to be used by adults and teenagers or by children helped by a parent or a supporting teacher.
About 15% of the world’s population lives with some form of disability. Many are not having their needs met because of barriers to participation in rituals, worship and faith community activities at their places of worship. To truly empower people with disabilities to become agents of positive change in their local communities, we recognize that everyone has a role to play. Our Doors Are Open seminar helps all faith communities to understand how to open their mind, hearts, and doors to people with all kinds of abilities. Traditionally, faith communities position people with disabilities as recipients of care and not as givers. Most faith communities do not have proper representation of people with disabilities throughout their activities despite a desire to be open and inclusive. This disparity is often the result of lack of understanding of how to think about disability differently. In this seminar, students will learn the social model of disability, which positions disability as a function of exclusively designed environments rather than a lack of ability. Our Doors Are Open Seminar will guide students on how to see their activities and situations through an inclusive lens as well as how to take actions to improve inclusion and achieve the welcoming goals of congregations.
