Keynote Presentation: The Human Experience of Disability
In this keynote Sarah speaks to how many in society view disability as a medical and mental condition, and how disability is the opposite of what is considered “normal”. During this presentation Sarah shares with the audience the concept that disability is a human experience. Sarah expresses that disability is something that can happen to anyone at any given time. She uses the talking points of Disability Culture, Self-Advocacy, Person-Centered planning and Self-Direction to demonstrate how the community of people who experience disability have the human right to live however they wish to.
