Avoiding Misconceptions When Designing Supports

Author: John O'Brien

John O'Brien is one of the leading thinkers of our time and he's played a profound role in shifting thinking about disability and injustice over more than four decades. Here he looks back to the important insights of normalisation and Social Role Valorisation and brings them up to date by connecting them to other emerging ideas on how to think clearly about disability supports, human dignity and mutual respect.
