How can health and social care services better serve people with disabilities? How can we meaningfully challenge ableist practice? What would a truly inclusive system look like?

Georgia Vine answers these questions and more as she charts her journey from her experience of children's services to occupational therapist and disability activist. Discussing stigma, independence, and the transition to adulthood, Georgia provides vital insight into the challenges she has faced and the communities she has built along the way.

Each chapter includes a reflection log enabling health and social care workers to think critically and practically about what they've learnt and how best to apply it to their role.

    An accessible and engaging exploration of living as a disabled person within an ableist society. Georgia Vine skilfully weaves her own experiences alongside both occupational therapy and disability theory in order to critically challenge our current healthcare systems.
