Beschreibung

Many of you have told us that applying the theory to daily practice is a major challenge. Many organisations, over the years have tried to implement the theory of disability equality. This book aims to make further change practical and possible.

At the heart of new legislation is an imperative to understand the distinctive nature of disabled people’s oppression, with disability equality providing important information to those faced with the job of addressing inequality within our services.

This book presents clear ideas and simple steps that will help you ensure that disabled children, adolescents and adult clients are fully respected and included in the life of your organisation.
This book will help you:
· to gain a greater understanding of the character of disabilism. To be able to better identify the issues facing disabled people as a protected group.
· to re-evaluate your ideas, practice, provision and participation. To go further and drive forward the empowerment and ethical commitment that meets everyone’s needs.
· to deepen your understanding.By broadening your insight into dealing with the discrimination disabled children and adults face, you’ll discover more creative ways to tackle it.
· and embrace change. Development is not only essential, it’s an exciting challenge, and with new knowledge comes enlightenment - the power to make change happen.

"Your handbooks allow equality issues to be real and current which is what people need when they are being trained in something so complex." Carrie James, Case Manager for Health Transition, Walsall Children's Disabilities and Long Term Condition Services Child Development Centre.

Über den Autor

I lived in France for many of my formative years. This has endowed me with a passionate and spirited approach to living and learning and a vigorous enthusiasm for lively debate, fine foods and wine – life’s great pleasures! It has also given me the advantage of being proud and unashamed of the gifts I bring to others, and a direct approach in all matters – qualities that have proved invaluable throughout my working life.

On the shoulders of giants: this book would not have been possible without the leadership of Richard Rieser and Micheline Mason. It is their vision and their hard work that has facilitated a shared perspective and has helped so many of us to move from enlightenment, to empowerment and emancipation. 

If you think you are leading and turn around to see no one following, then you are just taking a walk. Disabled people are a powerful crowd, we walk together, and the ideas that follow are shared - not purely mine. I have tried to speak on our behalf, a humbling and difficult exercise. A walk in the park it was not, so I am always thankful to feel we I have shared the experience. Thanks to Alison John, Tara Flood, Michelle Daley, Jaspal Dhani, Chris O’Mahony, and Natalie Meadows for friendship and kinship. As always it is the kindness and gentleness found in times together that gives me the strength to face the daily fight. 

Living with the daily challenge is tiring, and movement forward would not be possible without those willing to hold your hand - the allies who enable peace and acceptance when times are hard. Thanks goes to Ian Chapman, Jill Mundy, Wendy Stark, Julia Hayes, Andrea Layzell, Sharon Scoffings, Julie Hykin and Carrie James. Thank you Julia Hayes, to whom I am indebted once more for turning a senseless muddle of words into clear orchestrated phrases. Thank you again to Mark Longbottom for your speed, art and colour, you made plain words look attractive and beautiful. Thank you to our clients who kept us busy, happy and fed. Finally, profound appreciation to the mentor, he who keeps possibility alive and the north star shining – thank you John West-Burnham.
