Article Shares 6 Ways to Be A Better Ally to People Living with Disabilities

From Mashable:

  1. Don’t use people with disabilities as your own inspiration to rise above challenges.

  2. View aids that enhance the lives of people with disabilities as more than just devices.

  3. Understand a person’s disability doesn’t define her, but may be an important part of her identity.

  4. Never have low expectations for someone with disabilities.

  5. Don’t assume people living with disabilities are miserable, unhappy or less fulfilled than you.

  6. Stop being afraid of disability.

I'm a Social Worker, Educator, and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
