Too often disability is framed within a deficit model. I advocate taking an asset-based approach to disability. I say, let’s focus on what we bring, then where relevant what we need in order to bring it. On our personal development programme, we call out deficit model thinking and explore how we position ourselves to highlight what we bring as a direct result of our lived experience. In my latest LinkedIn article I share how this works and provide examples of how it can be transformative.
