Thanks for your reply Andreas.

I see where you are coming from in regards to #9. I'm more referring to instances where disability awareness training and those types of things are done by people without disabilities. So i'm talking more about the social aspect of disability rather than the medical side of disability. I've also seen organisations that teach about disability issues and have absolutely 0 people in the organisation with a disability. Conversations about us should include us.

I hope that clarifies my point a bit better!
