In order to make change, we must first ensure that others are aware of differently abled people.
What better way to do this than through media?; movies, shows, music, and books all help people connect with a character in a story, and empathize on a human level.
A company in the United Kingdom, Inclusive Minds, is empowering young children with special needs to use their voices in order to create change through literature.
Young Embassadors for Inclusion is a group of kids who are being trained to speak out about their disability. They are becoming a knowledge base for authors, illustrators, and publishers to reference when writing about differently-abled characters.
