Hello, everyone. I’m Cobi Sewell. Today I will be talking about disability. You know when you hear or see the word “disability”, you instantly think of wheelchairs, physical disability, mental illness. If you type it in Google images, it’s all ‘handicapped’. You type in ‘disability’ and it comes up with ‘handicap’ pictures. People often have the wrong picture of disability. But in medical terms… There are medical terms for everything. What are we not capable of? Hearing. That’s it. We are not able to hear. ‘Dis’ means not. Ability. What are we not able of, is to hear. A disability of hearing. That’s all. That is a medical term. Meanwhile, people see disabilities as physical disability, wheelchairs and mental illness. Ya know, all that. The ‘handicap’ thing. Which is why the Deaf community hates the term, but in medical terms, we are disabled. Disability is not always a bad thing. It’s not our disabilities, it’s our abilities that matters.
