I am excited to share the news that my book: Ableism: The Causes and Consequences of Disability Prejudice is now available from

With a background in Disability Studies and the psychology of stereotyping and prejudice, I have compiled convergent evidence of the many forms of ableism that disabled people face, along with the reasons that drive fears, curiosities, and good intentions in ways that perpetuate inequality and misunderstanding. Disentangling the roots of disability prejudice, this accessible volume describes specific strategies for combating distinct forms of ableism and the individual and coalitional approaches used to resist discrimination and promote human rights.

I hope that you find this to be an essential resource for organizations, student scholars, activists and allies dedicated to inclusion, equal opportunity, and the application of research to advance social justice.
