Learning About Disability
It's a lot easier to communicate about disability when you learn to understand it in your own way. You probably have questions about your disability or someone else's disability and you have a right to learn the answers.
But sometimes adults:
- Don't want to talk about it (because maybe they are uncomfortable)
- Don't know how to talk about it (maybe no one ever helped them figure this out either)
- Don't think you will really understand it (disability can be complicated sometimes)
- Don't think you will be able to handle it (maybe it will upset you)
You can and should learn more about disability. There are lots of ways to do this. It is always important to remember that everyone is an individual and even if you have the same disability as somebody else, no two disabilities or people will ever be totally the same.
