Introduction to Disabilities: Q&A (Episode 10)

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?

If you haven’t seen or listened to Episode 2, you should check it out first.

You can also listen to Cynthia Miller-Lautman’s conversation with her husband about his being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder as an adult.
