“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”- Albert Einstein
This quote refocuses me to see my children through their abilities rather than their disabilities. The idea of seeing my girls through the lens of what then can do rather than what they can’t (yet) do has gifted me with the courage to remove barriers we have encountered along our way.
I encourage you to do the same so that you too can recognize the genius in your loved one and help them to reach beyond the perceived limitations of their disability.
