Disability Resources

Disability Resources

Disability resources are absolutely imperative for most of us with disabilities. And I should know; I am  deaf and have TBI, C-PTSD . My daughter has Down syndrome, a disability that is different from mine, my son is on the Autism spectrum, and I’ve been on a quest to understand both better.

I’m not sure I’ll ever get tired of trying to understand it, either. I find disability to be fascinating as a concept, much like others are fascinated with culture. The history of people with disabilities, how disability presents itself, what difference means. I enjoy questioning mainstream ideas of disability and I thoroughly disagree with the medical model of disability – that is, that disability is something to cure, that people with disabilities are broken bits of flesh that need fixing.

This blog and the disability resources I point to follow the social model of disability.
