Jhon: Access to parks
Many young disabled people have told us that they often cannot easily use local facilities. In his film, Jhon takes us round a park near his home which shows some of these difficulties and highlights what makes some places inaccessible.
Emily: Working as a team
In Emily's film, she talks to her surgeon, Mr Hill, about cerebral palsy, how she feels about doctors working with young disabled people and the importance of team work.
In Katherine's film, she explains that because of her impairment she sometimes has to do certain things differently, or use particular equipment, but that in every other respect she is just like anyone else. She talks about some of the things she enjoys in her life, and one of these is wheelchair basketball.
