The Ed Roberts Campus is a nonprofit (501c3) corporation that has been formed by disability organizations that share a common history in the Independent Living Movement of People with Disabilities. These organizations joined together to build a universally designed, transit–oriented campus located at the Ashby BART Station in South Berkeley. The ERC houses the offices of the collaborating organizations as well as fully accessible meeting rooms, a computer/media resource center, a fitness center, a cafe, and a child development center.
Ed Roberts (1939-1995) was an international leader and educator in the independent living and disability rights movements. He fought throughout his life to enable all persons with disabilities to fully participate in society. Ed was a true pioneer: he was the first student with significant disabilities to attend UC Berkeley. He was a founder of UC’s Physically Disabled Students Program, which became the model for Berkeley’s Center for Independent Living (CIL) and over 400 independent living centers across the country. He was one of the early directors of CIL. He was the first California State Director of Rehabilitation with a disability; he was awarded a MacArthur fellowship; and he was co–founder and President of the World.
The concept of the Campus took form shortly after Ed’s death in 1995. The Berkeley Mayor’s Office convened a meeting of representatives from the City Council, UC Berkeley, CIL, WID and other disability leaders to discuss how to memorialize Ed’s work. Disability community leaders decided they could best commemorate Ed’s work by supporting the organizations that he helped start and the Independent Living Movement that he championed. They decided to do this by establishing a center dedicated to fostering collaboration and improving the services and opportunities for people with disabilities locally and worldwide.
The Museum of disABILITY History, located at 3826 Main St., Buffalo, New York
Established in 1998 by Dr. James M. Boles, president and CEO of People Inc. (Western New York's leading non-profit human services agency) the Museum of disABILITY History has steadily expanded over the years and, in late 2010, moved to a brand new location (pictured above).
The Museum of disABILITY History is dedicated to advancing the understanding, acceptance and independence of people with disabilities. The Museum's exhibits, collections, archives and educational programs create awareness and a platform for dialogue and discovery.
The Museum of disABILITY History is a project of People Inc. and is chartered by the New York State Department of Education Board of Regents. People Inc. exists so that individuals with disabling conditions or other special needs have the supports they need to participate and succeed in an accepting society.
As noted throughout the site, this project has been developed with the generous support of People Inc. and the B. Thomas Golisano Foundation. We are truly thankful for their participation in this worthwhile effort.

The talk, ‘Autism, adulthood and fictions: reading autism portrayals after diagnosis’, was given by Dr James McGrath, a Senior Lecturer in Cultural Studies at Leeds Beckett University. The event coincides with Disability History Month and forms part of Leeds Cultural Conversations series programmed by the Centre for Culture and the Arts at Leeds Beckett. Dr McGrath, whose book Naming Adult Autism will be published by Rowman & Littlefield International next year, said: “Autism and fiction have an odd relationship. Many diagnosticians count a person’s enjoyment of fiction amongst indications that he or she is probably not autistic. And while countless novels, films and TV series have featured autistic adult characters, people with autism are largely unrecognised as readers and viewers of these portrayals.” The talk combines literary criticism with a post-diagnosis view of how autism is depicted in contemporary culture. Dr McGrath addresses aspects of gender, class, and disability itself in relation to autistic identities, and will also considers the wider potential of culture in shaping and challenging expectations placed on autistic adults.
ESPN Road to LA Documentary
ESPN, the global broadcast partner of the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games, produced a 'Road to LA' documentary on Special Olympics Australia athletes as they prepared to head to the Games in Los Angeles. To find out more about Team Australia's achievements at the Games, please visit specialolympics.com.au/teamaustralia.Special Olympics Australia
Special Olympics has grown from a backyard camp into a global movement that has been transforming the lives of people with an intellectual disability for almost 50 years. The global sporting community was pioneered by the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver, sister to US President John F Kennedy as well as Rosemary who had an intellectual disability. Today, Special Olympics supports over 5 million athletes in 177 countries.
Special Olympics began in Australia in 1976 when many people with an intellectual disability were shut in institutions. While this is no longer the norm in Australia, we continue to seek public support to ensure that people with an intellectual disability are not shut out. By helping us give them opportunities to play sport, together we can open the door to personal achievement, pride and inclusion for some of the marginalised and isolated members of our community.
