Perception is a weird thing. Growing up my peers struggled to understand how me there classmate with a physical disability was in mainstream classes. I think this came in part because there was a program for students who had what I perceive as complex physical and cognitive disabilities and because of this my peers automatically grouped me in the same category also.
I understand that disability can in its very nature be a complex thing and that each case like each individual is unique. Knowing this then I ask why we are grouping each other in to any category at all that simply doesn’t make sense, does it. Even as a kid I wondered why my peers grouped me in any category what was the point. Why can’t our abilities be celebrated for what they are and we be allowed to be the unique person that we are why does my being in a wheelchair automatically group me in with the rest of society who uses that as their means of functional movement?
I guess my simple request is to remember that everyone is unique and lets take a moment to celebrate everyone’s unique talents and gifts
