Made Possible, stories of success by people with learning disabilities in their own words
Have you ever heard a person with a learning disability talk about their talent, or share the secret of their success? No. That’s why Made Possible needed to be written. Contributors include acclaimed actor Sarah Gordy MBE, the former Paralympic athlete Dan Pepper, and Gavin Harding MBE, the UK's first mayor with a learning disability.
In Made Possible, eight remarkable individuals present their authentic experiences – in their own words – and show us what society misses out on by overlooking them, pitying them, patronising them, and labelling them in terms of their conditions. Crucially, the book reveals how people can make invaluable contributions to society when their potential is acknowledged and supported by those around them.
