Forum: Empower people with disabilities to stand as equals – AutismSTEP

It is encouraging that Singapore is taking steps to include and support the community of people with disabilities in tangible ways (New accreditation for firms hiring people with disabilities, Oct 9).

One gap that has yet to be addressed is that of enabling people with disabilities to make a living from providing services to support their community.

These can range from professional services such as occupational and speech therapy, peer support services such as those from counsellors and adult educators, as well as other useful services such as remote IT support and video production.

Many of us understand inclusion as a dependent relationship where abled people are responsible for supporting people with disabilities and integrating them into mainstream society.

People with disabilities are seen as being unable to contribute meaningfully to determine their future; plans, training and initiatives are undertaken by abled people on their behalf.

I propose shifting to a relationship of inclusive equality, where both abled and disabled people work together as equal partners to create change – with the Government forming a quadripartite alliance with service providers (including employers), caregivers and disabled people.
