This Is How Things Should Be..Have A Child With A Disability? Look At This.

Many times we don’t even understand how much we label people with a disability. Sometimes it’s by looking the other way when we walk past , then sometimes it’s by striking up another conversation so nobody brings it up , or  sometimes even avoiding disabled people all together.

In treatment centers and facilities all across the world people that are able and willing and ready and excited to do things are laying in the bed somewhere  hiding out from the rest of the world because of their disability,  not by their choice but because they’ve been labeled and stamped.  That’s how they’re going to have to  live their lives unless somebody intervenes.

Here’s an example of what is possible. Not only is it possible it’s very likely that you could find a group of people like this that could run a restaurant or another type of store in any type of a workshop or facility where they help people with disabilities. But many times owners of businesses do not want them around because of the way that they act or the way that they walk even.

This story illustrates  the term ” normalization” – which occurs when mainstream society focus on the strengths that the disabled have, and use them in place of their weaknesses. We all have strengths and weaknesses,  the only difference between us and them is they wear theirs on their sleeve.

What’s true of every human being is we tend to  rise up to the expectations or lower ourselves to the expectations of the environment around us.

For example  if you’re screaming and yelling at your children on the way to the library usually by the time you get to that library door you make good and sure that nobody is  screaming when you walk in the library , because they dont  tolerate it.

It’s the same for  people with  disabilities. They rise to the  highest level they can and when put in the right environment  and whatever they cannot accomplish another can make up, but you’ll never know unless you raise that bar of expectations.

I have a great desire to help others make it through times that I myself have had to navigate. I understand the process, the pain,and the support needed. I, and the rest of my team all have both the formal education to coach others but more importantly we also have the life experience which allows us to relate to all the phases and hurdles that come with recovering from issues like depression, addiction, domestic violence, spiritual confusion, and much more. I feel that the combination of formal training and life experience allows us to meet those we help every point of need- in a real way.
