Learning Disability…….Tick!

Learning Disability  ……….Sign_tick_box

Feeling used and not included

Not learning new things

Feeling hatred from people

Having no voice

Lack of confidence

Feeling miserable

At least it’s a day trip out

Feeling bored

Left out

Nodding!

Pretending: ‘ Yes. I understand’

Being treated like children

Feeling like a baby

 

But…. to be included is

To be treated equally

Having a voice

My voice

My strong voice

Taking part

Being encouraged

Improving our skills

Becoming trainers… like me!

Feeling confident!

Finding our voices to make things better for others

Spreading our words

Peer to Peer Support!

No more tick boxes.
