The deal with disability
A new blog, The Deal With Disability by Eva, a 26 year old young lady with a severe disability, Cerebral Palsy. She cant walk, talk or speak, yet she has an uncanny way of communicating with people and helps us see her world in a different way.

Her blog deals with how people react with her in everyday situations.

Check it out.

2. I'm in the field
as well as being a PWD. In fact, I'm off to a systems change advocacy training in a few minutes. I'll check this out later.

Indeed, I know a woman with a similar disability, plus autism. Her IQ was once thought to be 10. Now she's a graduate of the University of Denver (known as DU!) and the editor of a new e-zine to which I have contributed.
