During Disability Programs Specialized Services Training Week in March 2021, the episode An Introduction to Disabilities (Episode 2) was played in a live session moderated by Sophie-Anne Scherrer, OT and Dana Lawlor, S-LP. Toward the end of the session, the audience were able to ask questions to Sophie-Anne and Dana.
In this episode, Sophie-Anne and Dana revisit their answers to some of the questions ask during the live event, and answer a few that they couldn’t get to then.
Some of the questions addressed in this episode are:
- What is a disability?
- Is addiction a disability?
- Can anxiety be a disability?
- What can I do if I think someone’s child has a disability, but the parents don’t recognize it?
- Is it possible to be diagnosed with a disability as an adult?
