Loved the timeline and chartReview by Mary
I really appreciated learning about the history of disability in the U.S. through the organized and easy to read timeline that was provided. I also loved the chart that gave us a visual as to how disability impacts all of us in the U.S. It's important to remember how far we've come but also how far we have to still go in order to continue to break down barriers!
