A Product of Disability Access: Empowering Tribal Members with Disabilities & Their Families
by Spirit Lake Consulting, Inc.
When they think of learning disabilities, most people imagine a child sitting in a classroom struggling with a fourth-grade reading book. Anne Ford, author and mother of a child with a learning disability, says,
There was even a time, twenty or thirty years ago, when many people honestly believed that learning disabilities in adulthood were not a problem. Sure, kids had trouble in school sitting still, learning to read and write, but once they were out of school they got jobs that did not involve sitting for six hours a day and everything was fine, right?
There was even a term, ‘the six-hour retardate’ used in many of the articles published in scientific journals, assuming that children had trouble in school but after school, on weekends and once they graduated (or, more often, dropped out) they went on to be mechanics or housewives or something not requiring much in the way of academics and everything was pretty much okay.
