<< think we've become label happy as a society. I was born with CP, but I
don't think if you become overweight or have a doctor say that your child
has ADHD or is bi-polar should automatically qualify you for the same type
of services as those of us who are born with the disability.
of course people do not qualify; even someone who has CP in a mild form may
not need servcies or accomodations... and there are some people who have
Bi-Polar Affective Disorder has enough of a disability to warrent services;
even ADHD or diabetes...it really should be based on need; not label........
