Following on from a series of posts on disability in aid-work on WhyDev I wrote a response. In it I affirm positively the place my own disability has had in my work, and then, beyond this, try to explain why we shouldn’t see disability or disabled people as separate. Disability is a normal part of all our lives, and a common – albeit underestimated – experience for all of us working in international development.
