TranscriptI never thought of myself particularly as disabled. I was just in a wheelchair. There were things I couldn’t do. I couldn’t run upstairs, I couldn’t go climbing, But no, I always saw myself as part of the school and the school always saw me as part of the school. You know, they didn’t treat me as special. I think that’s actually quite important.
They didn’t treat me as special, they just understood that there were times when concessions had to be made. But they were concessions because I actually couldn’t do things and no, I wasn’t mollycoddled, which was exactly the right way of doing it.
