This guidebook was created by Madelynn Wellons, the 2019 Dinah F.B. Cohen DREAM Fellow. It was designed to be, “..a mentor equivalent for people with disabilities who do not have a mentor to guide them through the disclosure process.”
This guidebook is about inclusion in campus sports and recreation programs. Written by Timotheus “T.J.” Gordon Jr., a researcher at University of Illinois – Chicago, 2021 Dinah F. Cohen DREAM Fellow, and an autistic sports enthusiast, this guidebook discusses ways that campus intramural sports and recreation programs could attract and include students, staff, and faculty with disabilities.
This guidebook provides information about how to provide an inclusive environment for all during any training event. Whether presented in person or virtually, this resource gives tips on ways that the event can be accessible on a broader scale.
