The Poster – By Zach Kalpakchiev
13 April, 2022
Today we were walking back to the class and saw a poster. It said, “Disabled is not a bad word.” It was for Autism. I don’t think that people with Autism are disabled. Just because they have Autism, it doesn’t stop them from doing things.
Like me. Just because I have CP (Cerebral Palsy), it doesn’t mean I can’t do a lot of things.
I can horseback ride, bike, body surf, zip-line, ski, rockwall climb, go boating, and soon skateboard!
So don’t call me “disabled”: call me, Zach.
