14.How would you help people with disabilities?
How I would help people with disabilities is to support them is looking at their different types of abilities as opportunities to solve problems nobody else has because they are in a unique place. I would also love to teach parents that their kids with challenges are still vibrant whole beings no matter what that looks like and I would love the parents to celebrate their kids just the way they are and to teach them not to look at the challenges as obstacles but as unique opportunities to solve problems and to support them in being everything that they can be. To challenge them to go as far as they can rather than use the ‘disability’ as an excuse not to be do or have what they want.
The hardest part of my job right now is that medicine has become a business rather than a healing relationship.
