Equity-Forward Forums for Educators, Featuring Caleb Stephens


In this episode of SWIFT’s ongoing Equity-Forward Forums for Educators series, Wade Kelly sits down with educator and therapist Dr. Caleb Stephens. In this succinct conversation, the two discuss how trauma interrupts learning, the ways in which ableism renders some students invisible, and why simply chasing joy can be an empowering act. Dr. Stephens reminds us that within education we tend to label things as misbehaviors that are actually unfulfilled needs.
