Our Angel Jon received his wings April 2019. April 2020, Jim, the world's most wonderful Dad, joined them. Now, they all watch over me.

    The last part of the article says it all:

    One mainstream narrative that is particularly harmful, she added, is that its the responsibility of people with disabilities to overcome any obstacles in their way.

    Instead, communities should step up and find ways to support people with disabilities, she said.

    That can include low-cost, simple changes. One blind chemist told Martucci that he got through his undergraduate chemistry classes by working with an art student, who created raised-line paintings of the diagrams in his organic-chemistry textbooks using puffy paints.

    It didnt require the latest high-tech gadgetry to do that, Martucci said. Its really more about a shift in mindset, and thinking creatively.

    YES! YES! AMEN! I think if simple accommodations are made STEM could make such great progress with disabled scientists at the helm. Disabled people are surrounded by STEM our whole lives and in the case of some people with brains that are wired differently they may even have an advantage in STEM, like a particular attention to detail and memory, that a able bodied scientist wouldn't notice.
