First, I want to thank you, for taking the time, to be part of a conversation, about inclusion. I really wanted to be a part of this webinar, because of how important inclusion is to me. When I started thinking about, and planning what I wanted to say, it felt like such a big project. I decided to start, with why do I feel the way I do, about inclusion.
If you have heard me speak before, you've heard me talk about being part of a big family. I think my views on inclusion, were again impacted by the values of my family.
It seems odd to say this, but I don't think, growing up, my younger siblings, even knew, I had a disability. My disability was just a part; of who I was. The expectation, was that we were all, doing everything together. Anyone of us could have needed something, in order to participate. We just looked at what did we want to do, and what would be needed to accomplish it. In the community, we had to consider wheelchair access, for me to participate with my family. If lack of access meant I couldn't participate, then no one participated. If it wasn’t something we could do together, then it didn't have value to our family.
