Made Possible: Stories of success by people with learning disabilities - in their own words (Paperback)Saba Salman (editor)
- Coming soon
There are 1.5 million people with learning disabilities in the UK today but our media and our politicians barely pay them lip service. When learning-disabled people do get a mention they are often presented as a burden on the state or objects of pity, but rarely invited to speak for themselves.
Made Possible is a powerful, one-of-a-kind anthology that challenges the dominant narratives and shatters these lazy stereotypes. It presents the authentic experiences of a range of professionals from diverse backgrounds, who have all made remarkable achievements - in sport, the arts and politics, among other fields - regardless of the fact they happen to have a disability. Here they tell the stories behind their success, in their own words.
