See the Ability in Disability

International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is held on 3 December each year. IDPwD is a United Nations observed day celebrated internationally. It aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate their achievements and contributions.

This year’s IDPwD theme is see the ability in disability. This panel are individuals challenging the way disability is viewed. A neuroscientist advocating for greater acceptance of medical students and doctors with disabilities, a founder of a global tech-enabled media company creating accessible information resources to help unleash neurodivergent potential in the workplace, a ‘regular’ Mumma who is sharing the real and raw side to Autism Spectrum Disorder with her podcast ‘Autism Our Way – No Shame in Sharing’, and a host of a different type of podcast shining a bright light on sex and disability.
