My Latest for Freedom Press Canada: Integration of the Disabled-Who Benefits?

I hope you enjoy it. 

"As far as I am concerned, any attempts to integrate the disabled must first and foremost benefit the disabled individual. The intent must be that the disabled individual is the primary beneficiary of any program or service."

"The social benefits or any residual or ripple-effect “feel good” benefits are secondary or tertiary. In other words, my child is not a social justice project."

"It’s amazing to me how very well intentioned, intelligent and caring people and organizations (and governments) continually get this wrong."
