Around this time of year, many media outlets start publishing stories about people with disabilities in higher education, and how they "overcame their disability" or "didn't let disability stop them".
This might be a good moment to step back and think a different way. The "social model of disability" asks "what are people 'disabled' by?" and comes up with a different answer: people are often much less 'disabled' by their condition than by society itself.
That is, society has been structured in a way that excludes people with disabilities. We can observe examples of this in higher education all the time.
This idea is also central to the work of Independent Facilitators. We know that people can often do much more than society expects they can, and that living a better, fuller life isn't impossible. It can happen with a little advice, support, and a willingness to let the old expectations fall away.
