Learn More Series: History of Treatment of Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities with Dr. Michael Wehmeyer

For this Learn More Series keynote speaker event, Dr. Michael L. Wehmeyer joins us from The University of Kansas Department of Special Education to give a longitudinal view of the history of the treatment of people with intellectual disabilities. This event was originally hosted via Zoom on Tuesday, October 12, 2021.

Dr. Wehmeyer was introduced by Oscar Hughes, doctoral student in the Wheelock College of Education & Human Development. Following Dr. Wehmeyer’s presentation, Hughes led the group in a brief Q&A session.

The Learn More Series is BU Diversity & Inclusion’s (BU D&I) signature program. Each year, BU D&I dives into a single topic of social importance through events, discussions, and programs — this year, we are exploring disability and the impact of ableism.
