In Conversation with… Lyndsay Bunting – Disability from the sidelines

Virtual via MS Teams.

Being a parent is a tricky job at the best of times. We enter the role with no prior experience, no qualifications and even less knowledge of what’s to come. If you add to this the additional challenges that a child who is born with disabilities brings and suddenly you are in a whole new world of unknowns.

Society’s view of disability is based on what people can’t do rather than what they can do- we often call it the medical model of disability. It’s based on a view of deficits and abilities that sit outside of a “normal” definition. This leads people to see individuals as things that need fixing and means we are less inclined to question what barriers there are at play and how we can support full participation.

In this session Lyndsay shares her experience of being a parent carer of a disabled child and raises questions about what can be done differently to support those with differential abilities in society.
