Dis-ABILITY or Ability?

Wednesday, May 02, 2007

Have you read Glenda's latest blog entry - Blogging for Inclusion?

On May 1st, 2007, she joined more than 100 writers in blogging against disablism - bringing about awareness, education and unity amongst people.

Glenda Watson Hyatt is a woman who has lived with cerebral palsy for 40 years. She blogs about her own experience with cerebral palsy; she openly shares to encourage others to take a closer look at how they view themselves, as well as the world around them.

I also encourage you to visit Philip's Diary of a Goldfish blog, as he has listed the many others who have taken the time to share their thoughts and who are bringing dis-ABILITY into the light.

You will be inspired, empowered and challenged!


Now, that is the question...
Is it only about physical capabilities?
Or is it a matter of perspective?

Please feel free to share your thoughts.

Karla I work in an education agency that provides Special Education services to nine local school districts. I'm going to send your link to my best friend who's principal of a school for cognitively and physically impaired young adults, and another administrator or two. Thanks so much for this!

Hi Karla, I just thought I'd come by and say Hi to you. It's been a while since we talked as I'm sure we all have been busy. Love your blog here!

Isn't Glenda just such an inspiration? I did an interview with her when she was doing her 40 blogs in 40 days tour. I also encourage everyone to go check out Glenda's website. The Diary of a Goldfish blog is great too. Thanks for inspiring us.
