Employable Me on BBC2

This is just something that I wanted to give some special attention to at the moment, it’s on BBC2 and it’s called Employable Me. It’s about people with various disabilities who are struggling to find work. The people in the featured programme suffer from a wide-range of problems from tourettes, partial sight and Autism. I myself have a disability called Asperger’s which is a mild form of Autism so have first-hand experience of how challenging it can be to live with a disability which can affect numerous aspects of your life. From socialising, making friends, work to basic living. I’m thoroughly proud that the BBC allowed for a programme that challenges one of the biggest social taboos of our time. I myself have friends with various disabilities and have met people with various disabilities so have seen first-hand of how much of a hurdle it can represent for them, and how some people in society both view and treat them. All I ask is that that next time you see someone with a physical or learning disability don’t view them like they’ve escape from some mental institution or some strange weird being, but view them as a person. People with disabilities are no different from those whom are able-bodied or no learning disability and deserve your love, respect, care, time and attention as much as the next.
