Comedienne Stella Young on Disability – View From A Wheelchair

 

tumblr_n6poil0O1s1r1tezoo3_500All TBI survivors have to live with one or more disabilities. Very often this leads to depression, in part because disabilities, whether visible or invisible, are considered by almost everyone to be limitations. Even the word “disability” has a negative connotation. Stella Young, who spends her life in a wheelchair, has an interesting perspective on disability that she speaks about in this TED Talk. She talks about “social disability,” in which disabled people are thought of as being limited. Society has imposed a major hurdle on disabled people by its own definition of them. Stella hopes for a society that doesn’t see disability as a “bad thing.” To be sure, disabilities often make daily life more difficult, but Stella wishes for a society in which disabled people can be seen as normal and can flourish.
