 Description
Name: Disability History Exhibit - 22 Panel Display
Description:* This twenty-one panel exhibit traces perceptions, attitudes, services, struggles and achievements in the history of persons with developmental and other disabilities.

* From antiquity through the present, the exhibit brings viewers through an illustrated timeline, chronicling societal interpretations of disability through moral, medical and cultural group models. Color-coded to easily trace models throughout history.

* The exhibit helps viewers see patterns in perceptions (through moral, medical and cultural lenses) and make connections to other groups who have experienced institutional discrimination.
Using plain language and hundreds of images, this exhibit connects historical themes in disability to societal values and the treatment of people with disabilities throughout the ages.

* The exhibit also strikes a balance between easily understandable information and a comprehensive history viewed from multiple angles.

* Great for workshops, conferences and disability events. Easy to transport and set up. Powerful visual images.
