social media meets disability!

with one comment

Hey all! I’ve seen a few of these on my friends statuses today (on a social networking site called “Facebook”) :

“Children with a disability just want what we all want, to be accepted. Can I make a request? Is anyone willing to post this and leave it in your Status for at least an hour? It is Special Education Week and it is in honor of children made in a unique way :)”

It’s the standard sort of copy and paste as a status update type deal, but apparently this time with a point. Thoughts on the effectiveness of this tool in changing attitudes towards disability? Thoughts on what this says about neurodiversity? Thoughts at all?
