what harry potter and disability have in common

Harry potter fans are all too familiar with the invisibility cloak and frankly, so am I, thanks to the visibility of my cerebral palsy I am left with the feelings of social invisibility that rears its ugly head when lack of time and understanding creates a social divide. The sad but very real reality is that that as visible as my wheelchair makes my disability it is also the gap that can separate me from meaningful social interaction with my peers.

As I have gotten older, this has seemed to improve adults seem to have more patience and although they may not immediately understand something, they have a willinthat thatgness to learn that the younger folks simply don’t have the time for. I recognize ┬áis a gross generalization on my part, but the point still remains the same, often understanding comes with age.
Do you find your disability makes you invisible and how do you think we can help others over come this?

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
