I would like to dispel something things that I feel are myths about disability and social interactions. Growing up I was the only student in mainstream classes with a disability. Or rather, a viable one at least. I have struggled with feeling equal to my peers. It wasn’t that my peers were trying to leave me out or be mean in anyway.
Kids Means Well
I knew growing up that people meant well but the wheelchair was added element that people often over looked. It is hard sometimes to look past this and not take the social isolation as a personal a front. But generally the physical disability makes more of a limitation then I expected.The upside to this though, is that I am comfortable with my own company. I know how to entertain myself well and truthfully I don’t have moments where I enjoy the solitude. I think it takes a certain type of personality to be okay with their own company and as children this is for sure something that I developed. Do you enjoy your own solitude or doe you prefer the company of others?
