Tomorrow Is International Day of People With Disabilities.

Very close to my heart as my Daughter has Downs Syndrome. I feel that this day is important as it reminds people that there are many people with disabilities living and working in this country. I know jayblueas has a disabled brother. Does anyone else in this Community have a disabled relative, friend or work colleague? Do you think that Australia does enough for disabled people? I know that some buildings still do not have lifts or ramps for wheelchair access. I also hate how people stare at my daughter. She is well behaved. What areas could do with improvement?

There are always areas that can be improved, a very important day and I believe everyone is equal. Reply

You should also remember I am the middle child, and my sister who is a year and 3 months older than me has cerebral palsy as well as my brother, and she needs 24 hour care, always been more severer than Andrew. I wonder if the ABC will interview my brother again for Disability Day, they had other years. Reply

You know I had a Downs Syndrome sister who passed away 3 months ago pags. Yes, I did not like the way people stared at her but surprisingly she never took any notice, it was me that was horrified sometimes and would stare back at them...I know childish but true. I do know that NDIS is under tremendous pressure now because their funding has not produced what was expected. Time will tell on this one. I feel that we have come a long way as far as people accepting people with disabilities but still have a long way to go. I think that everyone has some form of 'disability' that we do not notice. No one is perfect. Reply
