Publicly available Slide show and notes on disability

I created a slide show and notes for and introduction to social model of disability.  This is suitable for tweens, teens, and up.  It is creative commons licensed.  Please feel free to provide feedback and to use these slides and ideas for your group (with attribution).  The slides and notes are on Google Drive.  My brother gave this talk (with some coaching from me) for his kids’ Boy Scout Troop, and it took about 20 minutes.
