The book: Made Possible
Essays on success, by high-achieving people with learning disabilities.
Over 2018-20, I’m researching, writing and editing Made Possible, a crowdfunded collection of essays on success by high-achieving people with learning disabilities.
Have you ever heard a person with a learning disability talk about their talent, or share the secret of their success?
The UK’s 1.5m people with learning disabilities are usually talked about as scroungers or superheroes.
This book, partly inspired by my learning disabled sister, challenges current narratives and presents the stories of learning disabled professionals in their own words.
These are the stories of groundbreaking pioneers in competitive fields like the arts, politics and campaigning.
Made Possible is happening thanks to its incredible patrons, all of whom will be listed as supporters in the book.
Read more about Made Possible in this Guardian article or this Enable magazine story.
