In closing, a reminder of the “Declaration of Interdependence”:


The Declaration of Interdependence
by Norman Kunc, an American disability rights advocate
Do not see my disability as the problem.
Recognise that the real problem confronting disabled people is
social devaluation, prejudice and oppression.
Do not try to fix me because I am not broken.
Support me so I can make my contribution to the community in my way.
Do not see me as your client because I am your fellow citizen.
See me as your neighbour who, in this time of flourishing urban
isolation, is reminding you of how interdependent all of us are on
each other.
Do not try to change me. You have no right.
Help me learn what I want to know
Do not try to be a competent professional. You will invariably do
harm to me.
Be a person who cares, who takes the time to listen, and does not
take my struggle away from me by trying to make it all better.
Do not use “pedagogical approaches” on me. To abdicate personal
responsibility for your actions behind theories and strategies is
pure cowardice.
Be with me, and when we struggle with each other, let that be the
impetus of self-reflection.
Do not try to control me. I have a right to my power as a person.
What you see as non-compliance and manipulation, is actually me
being in conflict with you.
Help me learn how to negotiate at times of conflict. This is
assuming, of course, that you can do this for yourself at times of
anger.
Do not teach me to be obedient, submissive and polite. You do me no
favour.
I need to feel entitled to say “No” if I am to protect myself.
Do not try to be my friend. I deserve more than that.
Get to know me. We may become friends.
Do not be charitable towards me. The last thing this world needs are
more [celebrities begging for money for us].
Be my ally as I fight against those who exploit me for their own
gratification.
Do not help me, even if it does make you feel good.
Ask me if I need your help. Respect my ”no” or let me show you how
you can best assist me.
Do not admire me. A desire to live a full life does not warrant
admiration.
Respect me because respect presumes equality.
Do not tell; teach and lead.
Listen, support and follow.
Take Care,


Julie
xx
