Disability Blog Carnival #30: What Professionals Need to Know

The 30th Disability Blog Carnival, the subject of which is "what professionals need to know" was pulled together by Kathryn on her blog Ryn Tale’s Book of Days

"I got the idea for this
carnival in thinking about the sensitivity and understanding or lack of
both by medical professionals regarding what a patient’s life is really
like. In my experience therapists, doctors, teachers, school
psychologists who have shown true empathy, a willingness to listen, and
respect for me and for Ellie have, sadly, been in the minority. I wish
more professionals would try to educate themselves about the people
they are trying to help."

Kathryn, we appreciate the work you put into this.  Now, if only we could get the professionals to read it.
