I, Cameron Wells developed Accessible Diversity based on my 12 years hosting and producing the syndicated disability issues program Handi-Link for CJAM 99.1 fm.
It was my intention to cover the lesser discussed or misunderstood aspects of disability life ranging from how fictional characters are portrayed to interactions in a work setting to cultural attitudes on disability and a wide range in between.
It was slated for presentation to elder College (a sublet of Canterbury College) in March 2020 prior to the Covid Pandemic and will be scheduled upon reopening.
Interviews include a US government representative explaining a legal loophole allowing workers with disabilities to be paid below minimum wage to RJ Mitte from T.V.’s Breaking Bad talking about bullying awareness concerning persons with disabilities, along with experts sharing their insights. It is my hope this course can be used to offer a real life story of persons with disabilities in order to allow the truth of their capabilities and to demonstrate disability is not a single matter to be understood, that it is in fact the complexities of a wide range of talents and aspirations.
