RED SHIRT DAY & NATIONAL ACCESSABILITY WEEK RESOURCES: TED TALKS

I’m Not Your Inspiration, Thank You Very Much

by Stella Young

Stella Young is a comedian and journalist who happens to go about her day in a wheelchair — a fact that doesn’t, she’d like to make clear, automatically turn her into a noble inspiration to all humanity. In this very funny talk, Young breaks down society’s habit of turning disabled people into “inspiration porn” just because of their disability rather than recognizing individuals for their accomplishments.

How I Fail at Being Disabled

by Susan Robinson

Susan Robinson is a business leader, inspirational speaker and blogger. Born with a genetic visual impairment, Susan Robinson is legally blind (or partially sighted, as she prefers it) which she says entitles her to a label she hates: “disabled.” In this funny and personal talk, she upends stereotypes and expectations of disabilities by sharing 5 ways at how she fails at being disabled.

When We Design for Accessibility, We All Benefit

by Elise Roy

Elise Roy is a disability rights lawyer and design thinker. According to Elise, losing her hearing was “one of the greatest gift” she has ever received as it has given her unique perspectives on the world. Elise proposes that “When we design for disability first, you often stumble upon solutions that are better than those when we design for the norm.” Accessible design is universal design that benefits everyone.
