Disability Culture

Some times during our adventure we  take driving break.  The purpose in taking these breaks is to increase my understanding of the disability culture beyond that of Autism Spectrum disorder.

Some of the readings have covered books on ADHD, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Dyslexia and additional readings on Autism. Today, while researching I found the below listed web site. This is a comprehensive broader perspective on disability culture.  The essays sight the resources in APA format for further research. http://www.123helpme.com/search.asp…

Then while checking my face book stream I found this.

The author, a autistic savant writer,   very clearly and thoughtfully expresses her thoughts and feeling about writing.     This was an assignment given to her while working on her Masters.

It made me wonder if we as educators and mentors stopped and asked questions such as this to the people we are serving.   How would we change?
