Week 8 DQ 1

Week 8 DQ 1
· Person-centered thinking places people and their capabilities, interests, and gifts before their diagnoses or treatments. For example, a child diagnosed with cerebral palsy would not be called “the child in the wheelchair” but instead would be recognized by the same traits that any other child might be: “Tommy likes trains and always remembers everyone’s birthday.” Could this practice of person-centered thinking be beneficial to other areas of diversity as well? Why?
Week 8 DQ 2
