Disability: A short history (34 minutes)
Many families find that when they have a child with a disability, they quickly come to accept the child and know what they can do and where they need help. However they may find that even those who are supposed to help may in fact make life more difficult. People who we thought would understand withdraw or seem to be uncomfortable in the presence of disability. Even today we may be advised by professionals to put the child into a segregated 'Special School', institution or group home. Why does this happen? This webinar may help to understand that others are not necessarily being cruel or unkind. They are just reflecting what we have done as a society for millennia.
Warning: his webinar contains confronting information that many families will find distressing.
