Ellen Fraser-Barbou explains when you have a disability, “everyone wants to protect you or remove anything that could be harmful or risky, and that is actually the most unhelpful thing anyone can do,” Ellen says “If you don’t take risks and you don’t make mistakes you can’t possibly learn or develop any sense of identity. It is about learning our own limits and what we can do. Rather than what other people think we should or shouldn’t be able to do.”
