10 things to know about disability (if you don’t already)

I was recently asked what are the 10 things, I wish people knew about disability. Here they are in no particular order. To readers, some of these will appear common sense, however, experiences I have had demonstrate there are still gaps in awareness.

1. Disability is a social construct — society is the disabler.

2. Having a disability does not define a person or dictate what their life will be like, society that does that.
