Campaign: To promote more respect for those with learning difficulties

I’ve had a learning disability all my life. I just get on with it, because I’ve never known anything different.

 

However, it can get extremely hard when people judge you as being slow.

 

My group and I have all experienced ridicule in the past and it makes us feel really low. It’s like they don’t care about our feelings. 

 

So with Fixers, we’re creating a poster campaign, urging people who may discriminate to treat others with respect.

  

The aim is to stop people from stereotyping those with learning difficulties and see them as individuals.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
