Autism-friendly Aladdin showing

Thanks to Learning Disability Today for hosting my blog on our visit to an autism-friendly showing of Aladdin in the summer.  'Imagine a performance where the sound of a wrapper being crunched is drowned out by lots of other noise.'

Are we in the learning disability movement any good at protesting?

He also introduces Jennifer, who has a learning disability and has strong views on activism. And he looks at the R Word campaign in the USA, which challenges use of the word Retard.
