“Disability rights are civil rights, and disabled people fought hard to secure the rights to your accommodations in the classroom. Those people who fought for your accommodations were spit on, arrested, isolated, and dismissed, but they wouldn’t take less than they deserve when it came to securing your rights to be in this classroom and at this institution. They are my heroes, and their work has also ensured that I am accommodated in our classroom as an employee of this university and as a multiply disabled person. You can bet that I really want you to use your accommodations, or help you get them if you don’t have any in place, or find a system that works for you if you don’t care to go through the official channels.”
