The clarion call of the Independent Living (IL) movement has long been, “Nothing about us without us!”
A number of barriers exist to the full inclusion of people with disabilities in the community: social stigma, fewer recreation opportunities, a fragmented continuum of health care and social services, limited employment opportunities…we often forget that change is possible – and happening!
Many well-meaning people work with people with physical disabilities, but may benefit from a more in-depth understanding of their skills, needs and aspirations.
If you work with people with physical disabilities and want to ensure that they are at the centre of what you do, I can help.
