Disability isn’t a big deal. Disability is a natural part of the human experience – it’s a chance and an opportunity to explore the world from new vantage points.
Societal attitudes about disability are a big deal.
A huge deal. An enormous deal. A deal that can make you gasp and can break your heart.
Don’t let it. Just remember that WE are society; each one of us is who a society is made of.
We can change this, we *will* change this.
Each one teach one, we can do it!
This isn’t so much about straight-up parenting as it is about a resource: DREDF. That is, Disability Rights Education Defense Fund.
