I can’t walk but it doesn’t mean I can’t think or that I have a learning disability. I am physically disabled! Sometimes when I am out with family, friends and or on my own, I will sometimes get a person who will act as if I can’t think or they will talk to me in ”baby talk”, if I am with someone they will talk to them about me! I understand that some people are not comfortable with people who have a disability, but why? When we all have some kind of difference we all have some kind of disability which is what makes us unique. So why is it so weird that I can’t walk and I talk funny, there is nothing wrong with my mind! If you have questions about my disability you can ask me not the person I’m with. I have CP, so what! There is so much more about me than just my disability!
To all my friends in chairs; or anyone who agrees with me that no matter if you are so called “normal” you still have some kind of difference which I would call it a disability. First do you think that everyone has a disability? If we were all the same the word we wouldn’t have any needs or differences. 2ed. What would you do to help someone who hasn’t had any experience with a person who has a visible disability; know that we are all the same?
