Please join us to hear Norman and Emma speak:
Most people view individuals with disabilities as "deficient" in some way and believe that by helping the disabled individual to minimize disability will increase their quality of life. Norman Kunc and Emma Van der Klift challenge this perception, claiming that people with physical, intellectual and sensory disabilities reflect the diversity of the human community. They contend that what’s needed is not an emphasis on "fixing", remediation and simple “awareness”, but instead an emphasis on acceptance and pride, focusing on the inherent assets and gifts that each person brings to the community. Does this mean individuals with disabilities, their allies, parents and professionals simply do nothing? Norm and Emma contend that when we understand the differences between acceptance and resignation, challenge and domination, our supports will be more effective and helpful.
