Not Special Needs

On March 21st it was World Down Syndrome Day. I saw a video made by people with down syndrome asking if they had ‘special needs’ or just ‘human needs’.

I thought it was good that the video challenged the idea that people with disabilities have ‘special needs’  The people in the video said they needed ‘education, jobs, opportunities, friends and some love’.

You can see the video at www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNMJaXuFuWQ  

Let us know what you think. Do people with disabilities have different needs to everybody else?
