People with Disabiltiies

People with disabilities should be judged as individuals and not merely on being disabled.

People with disabilities should be judged as individuals and not merely on being disabled.

I have a disability myself.
I am being treated for a mood disorder, plus I have a learning disabiity.
So this is also a personal site

I discovered many aspects
of the world of people with disabilities. The most important fact I learned
that disabled people do not want people feeling sorry for them. At least
the persons I discovered on the net definitely do not pity themselves.
They emphasize the positve, the things they can do. They also stress the
importance
of rights for people with disabilities and self-empowerment. There’s a
say in the disability rights movement. “Nothing about us without us. That
is disability professionals need to work together. This includes people
with developmental disabilities. There is a local group where I live called
“Speaking for Ourselves.” It is an organization where the higher
functioning
mentally retarded can and do decide what is right for them in their
community. They also like to be as
independent as possible. They are also all individuals. They are people
with disabilities. That is they are people first. Their disability is just
one part of them.

That is how I feel about
my disability. My conditions do not define me who I am. They some of
many
facets that make up Lynda Appell This is of course, true
of anyone and every one who has a disability. Of course this goes for
everyone in the worldPeople with a disability
for the most part, do not want to seen as just their disability but as
having abilities as well. After all people with disabilities are and should
be seen as individuals and their disability should NOT be the sole defining
factor of anyone.
