Ted Shires on Disability Misconceptions

I still think Ted Shires is one of the most eloquent – and indeed funny – disability advocates out there. His latest video can be seen here. In it, Shires responds to questions he frequently gets asked about having Cerebral Palsy. His answers are both very amusing and highly intelligent, and I think it is this self-knowing wit which makes shires stand out. He makes people laugh, but makes very good, valid points at the same time. As he says, there are a lot of misconceptions about CP out there, but it is only through people like Shires addressing them head on that we can hope to deal with them.
