#1. What would happen, they conjectured, if they simply went on assuming their children would do everything. Perhaps not quickly. Perhaps not by the book. But what if they simply erased those growth and development charts, with their precise, constricting points and curves? What if they kept their expectations but erased the time line? What harm could it do? Why not try? - Author: Kim Edwards
Developmental Disability quotes by Kim Edwards
#2. All children, including TCKs, face a myriad of developmental tasks as they grow from helpless infants into healthy adults. Among them is the need to develop a strong sense of personal identity as well as group identity, answering the questions Who am I? and Where do I belong? Traditionally, the family and community mirror back the answers and the child sees his or her image reflected in them. - Author: David C. Pollock
Developmental Disability quotes by David C. Pollock
#3. There is no greater disability in society, than the inability to see a person as more. - Author: Robert M. Hensel
Developmental Disability quotes by Robert M. Hensel
#4. Suffering, sin, and evil are no longer located in God's will, but are understood as arising within a finite, open, developmental, and future-oriented creation. They are dealt with by the power of God's love revealed in the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ. God's answer to the problem of woundedness and wickedness is not to show us now or in the eschaton how they fit into God's design or mosaic, but to show us how God overcomes the brokenness and maliciousness of the creation now and in the eschaton through the redemptive power of the cross and resurrection. Divine power is rethought as the suffering and transforming power of Jesus' cross and resurrection, not as the omnipotent power of the timeless will of God. Incarnation, instead of immutability, defines God's will and way. God is the suffering and transforming God. - Author: Tyron Inbody
Developmental Disability quotes by Tyron Inbody
#5. Obviously, because of my disability, I need assistance. But I have always tried to overcome the limitations of my condition and lead as full a life as possible. I have traveled the world, from the Antarctic to zero gravity. - Author: Stephen Hawking
Developmental Disability quotes by Stephen Hawking
#6. Sometimes disabled people overcome specific moments of ableism -
we exceed low expectations, problem-solve lack of access, avoid nursing
homes or long-term psych facilities, narrowly escape police brutality
and prison. However, I'm not sure that overcoming disability itself is an
actual possibility for most of us. Yet in a world that places extraordinary
value in cure, the belief that we can defeat or transcend body-mind
conditions through individual hard work is convenient. Overcoming is
cure's backup plan. - Author: Eli Clare
Developmental Disability quotes by Eli Clare
#7. ..children only begin to understand differences in desires when they are about eighteen months old...Toddlers are systematically testing the dimensions on which their desires and the desires of others may be in conflict... The terrible twos reflects a genuine clash between children's need to understand other people and their need to live happily with them. - Author: Alison Gopnik
Developmental Disability quotes by Alison Gopnik
#8. Children who experience abuse also learn to deny pain and chaos or accept them as normal and proper. They learn that their feelings were wrong or didn't matter. They learn to focus on immediate survival - on not getting abused, and miss out on important developmental stages. As a result, they have problems developing their own identities. - Author: Randi Kreger
Developmental Disability quotes by Randi Kreger
#9. I'm not an advocate for disability issues. Human issues are what interest me. You can't possibly speak for a diverse group of people. I don't know what it's like to be an arm amputee, or have even one flesh-and-bone leg, or to have cerebral palsy. - Author: Aimee Mullins
Developmental Disability quotes by Aimee Mullins
#10. Trust of others is in short supply for many adult survivors, as complex trauma generally involves major relational betrayal. It is, therefore, expectable (although paradoxical) that clients with these histories are predisposed to be mistrustful at the outset of therapy, precisely because of (and in proportion to) the actual trustworthiness of the therapist. When past experiences have thought hard lessons, namely, that one can least afford to trust the people who should be most trustworthy, it stands to reason that confusion about trust results. The therapist must understand and not take offense either personally or professionally and not react judgmentally or defensively. Practically speaking, this involves the therapist being prepared to patiently and empathically respond to active or passive tests or challenges to trustworthiness as legitimate and meaningful communication that deserves a respectful reply in action as well as in words. - Author: Christine A. Courtois
Developmental Disability quotes by Christine A. Courtois
#11. Entrepreneurs with disabilities are overwhelmingly successful. - Author: David Brenner
Developmental Disability quotes by David Brenner
#12. To me, one quality of disability justice culture is that it is simultaneously beautiful and practical. Poetry and dance are as valuable as a blog post about access hacks - because they're equally important and interdependent. - Author: Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha
Developmental Disability quotes by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha
#13. There is a plan and a purpose, a value to every life, no matter what its location, age, gender or disability. - Author: Sharron Angle
Developmental Disability quotes by Sharron Angle
#14. It was the best route to get folks to understand segregation fast. Civil rights and women's rights had a clear history. Making the transition to rights for people with disabilities became easier because we had the history of the other two. - Author: Major Owens
Developmental Disability quotes by Major Owens
#15. If you are deaf, you need captions for spoken elements. If you are blind, you need voiced descriptions of Web contents and spoken renderings of e-mail. The range of physical disabilities is very large, and we need many different tools to overcome the consequential barriers to Internet use. Let us commit ourselves to truly assuring that the Internet really is for everyone. - Author: Vinton Cerf
Developmental Disability quotes by Vinton Cerf
#16. The Bradford appetite was a disability, damn it and should be treated as such. - Author: R.L. Mathewson
Developmental Disability quotes by R.L. Mathewson
#17. My conversational difficulties highlight a problem Aspergians face every day. A person with an obvious disability - for example, someone in a wheelchair - is treated compassionately because his handicap is obvious. No one turns to a guy in a wheelchair and says, "Quick! Let's run across the street!" And when he can't run across the street, no one says, "What's his problem?" They offer to help him across the street. With me, though, there is no external sign that I am conversationally handicapped. So folks hear some conversational misstep and say, "What an arrogant jerk!" I look forward to the day when my handicap will afford me the same respect accorded to a guy in a wheelchair. And if the respect comes with a preferred parking space, I won't turn it down. - Author: John Elder Robison
Developmental Disability quotes by John Elder Robison
#18. Some parents manufacture an affirmative construction of their child's disability to disguise their despair, while others have a deep and genuine experience of joy in caring for disabled children, and that sometimes the first stance can generate the second. - Author: Andrew Solomon
Developmental Disability quotes by Andrew Solomon
#19. A key issue in developmental biology at that time was the problem of how cells underwent differentiation, with most workers concentrating on explanations in terms of changes in enzyme and gene regulation. - Author: Paul Nurse
Developmental Disability quotes by Paul Nurse
#20. People with disabilities are sometimes very humble and approachable, if you want a seasoned reputation, then behave like one of the handicaps. - Author: Michael Bassey Johnson
Developmental Disability quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
#21. If your child has a disability, a problem of any kind, do not become so wrapped up with the problem that you neglect the child. Your child needs your unconditional love far more than anything else - far more than any medical care, no matter how necessary. Far - Author: D. Ross Campbell
Developmental Disability quotes by D. Ross Campbell
#22. Remission is not a cure. It's an adjective of disability. - Author: Christy Leigh Stewart
Developmental Disability quotes by Christy Leigh Stewart
#23. Childhood vaccines are one of the great triumphs of modern medicine. Indeed, parents whose children are vaccinated no longer have to worry about their child's death or disability from whooping cough, polio, diphtheria, hepatitis, or a host of other infections. - Author: Ezekiel Emanuel
Developmental Disability quotes by Ezekiel Emanuel
#24. In America access is always about architecture and never about human beings. Among Israelis and Palestinians, access was rarely about anything but people. While in the U.S. a wheelchair stands out as an explicitly separate experience from the mainstream, in the Israel and Arab worlds it is just another thing that can go wrong in a place where things go wrong all the time. - Author: John Hockenberry
Developmental Disability quotes by John Hockenberry
#25. There are a large number of COVID-19 survivors that have been left disabled and are in the process of finding out how fraudulent the government disability system is. - Author: Steven Magee
Developmental Disability quotes by Steven Magee
#26. At first my father's job was clearing ruins. He had filed a sharp protest, however, justifying his disability over ten pages of closely spaced handwriting, buttressed by statements from witnesses and discharge papers from clinics for nervous diseases. His arguments were irrefutable, particularly if we take into consideration--aside from the actual facts--his polemical tone and his brilliant style. 'I hereby state for the attention of the esteemed Commissarist,' he wrote in his appeal, 'in connection with Item A-2, in which I took the liberty of citing the causes of my total incapacity and proving--if in a very sensible fashion--my abnormality as well as my complete mental and physical worthlessness, the worthlessness of a neurotic and alcoholic incapable of taking care of his family or himself, I hereby state, therefore, with a view to the most specific information possible on this matter, although each and every one of the aforementioned matters is in itself a physical amputation, I am stating that I am also flat-footed, a certificate to which effect I am appending from the draft board at Zalaegerszeg, by which I am exempt from military service by virtue of 100 percent flat-footedness. . . - Author: Danilo Kis
Developmental Disability quotes by Danilo Kis
#27. In the context of the autism world (and my outlook in general) this is were I stand equality is for everyone, everybody in the world - I look at both sides of the the coin and take into account peoples realities (that makes me neutral/moderate/in the middle).
That means that you look in a more three dimensional perspective of peoples diverse realities you cannot speak for all but one can learn from EACH OTHER through listening and experiencing.
I also try my best to live with the good cards I was given not over-investing in my autism being the defining factor of my being (but having a healthy acknowledgement of it) that it's there but also thinking about other qualities I have such as being a writer, poet and artist.
I do have disability, I do have autism and I have a "mild" learning disability that is true but I a human being first and foremost. And for someone to be seen as person equal to everyone else is a basic human right. - Author: Paul Isaacs
Developmental Disability quotes by Paul Isaacs

Developmental Disability quotes by Alison Gopnik

Developmental Disability quotes by Kishan Paul

Developmental Disability quotes by Lauren Potter
#31. Despite the constant lament that autism is just too costly, a significant or even 'crippling' economic burden for the social whole, the production of the time-rich but not time-efficient body of the autistic child has generated a multibillion dollar 'autism industrial complex. - Author: Anne McGuire
Developmental Disability quotes by Anne McGuire
#32. We cannot run away from the needs of LGBTI, sex workers, drug users, prisoners, and people with a disability. - Author: Michel Sidibe
Developmental Disability quotes by Michel Sidibe
#33. Autism is not a disability, it's a different ability. - Author: Stuart Duncan
Developmental Disability quotes by Stuart Duncan
#34. You know, I'm just a regular guy. I mow my lawn, shovel snow from the driveway, and change the oil in our vehicles. I do the grocery shopping and cook most of our dinners. I'm like any other man in America. Only I got lucky - I have a beautiful son and an activity we can do together, despite his disability. It's been an incredible journey. I'm not a hero. I'm just a father. And all I did was tie on a pair of running shoes and push my son in his wheelchair. - Author: Dick Hoyt
Developmental Disability quotes by Dick Hoyt
#35. Federal law currently prohibits landlords from discriminating against prospective tenants who have had a felony conviction for drug use. Why? Because drug or alcohol abuse is considered a disability. According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD): "An individual with a disability is any person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. The term physical or mental impairment may include, but is not limited to, conditions such as visual or hearing impairment, mobility impairment, HIV infection, mental retardation, drug addiction (except current illegal use of or addiction to drugs), or mental illness."[ii] - Author: Brandon Turner
Developmental Disability quotes by Brandon Turner

Developmental Disability quotes by Joni Eareckson Tada
#37. There was a lot of pain in that kiss. There was so much hurt and so much fear in it. I felt tears rolling down the both of our faces. But, in that kiss, there was even more want. We both wanted to smother out that pain, to not have so many horrible things in the all too recent past, to just be normal, to do the types of things we were supposed to be dealing with besides death and disability. - Author: Keary Taylor
Developmental Disability quotes by Keary Taylor

Developmental Disability quotes by Simone Weil

Developmental Disability quotes by Katherine Locke
#40. I think that everyone has something about themselves that they feel is their weakness ... their 'disability.' And I'm certain we all have one, because I think of a disability as being anything which undermines our belief and confidence in our own abilities. - Author: Aimee Mullins
Developmental Disability quotes by Aimee Mullins
#41. The shift from government (state power on its own) to governance (a broader configuration of state and key elements in civil society) has therefore been marked under neoliberalism.11 In this respect the practices of the neoliberal and developmental state broadly converge. - Author: David Harvey
Developmental Disability quotes by David Harvey
