Day 11: Watch "Things People with Disabilities Wish You Knew”

People without disabilities have all sorts of ideas— and often times, misconceptions— about those with special needs. Check out this Buzzfeed video about what people with disabilities would like you to know.

Consider these questions after watching the video:

  • Did this video change the way you thought of people with disabilities? If so, how?
  • Some of the people in the video mention that they don’t like when people call them an inspiration? Have you heard others quickly refer to people with disabilities as “Inspirational”? Why might that be offensive?
  • What are some ways to kindly ask questions about a person’s disability?
