  • There has been a lot of debate about whether the term “special needs” is an accurate and politically correct description of someone or people with mental and physical disabilities. Some people argue that the term stigmatizes disability as a bad thing and therefore, the word “disabled” needs to be encouraged.
    What is your opinion of the use of the term  “special needs” and why or why not do you use it to describe yourself or others who are disabled.

    • I never use the term “special needs” I don’t have any particular reason not to use it, but for some reason, the sound of it bothers me. I kind of wish there was just one word to describe disability. Not special, not unique, not touched, not a handicap, and so on, only disabled.
