In this Tedx talk, Alcott questions why people with disability are depicted as sad and depressed.
If my brother didn’t care I was in a wheelchair, why would I care if I’m in a wheelchair?
Four million Australians have a physical or intellectual disability, which is roughly 1 in 5. Alcott asks, how does that translate into public figures, on television, in parliament and amongst our friends and family. A call to bring them into the mainstream instead of being hidden away.
