I imagine a world where parents do not feel isolated and unsupported when their child is diagnosed with additional needs. So I wish every parent had the chance to meet a befriender, another parent who has experience who can support the family.
It would be great if everyone believed in this quote... 'If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it' by William Arthur Ward. l always wanted to be a Black-Belt in Judo - I achieved this by the age of 19.
It's been great chatting to my befriender. I have been finding things very stressful and she’s lovely and also had lots of practical advice. In the future I hope that everyone who needs it can have access to a similar service.
I imagine a world where we are all like penguins because they all care and love each other so much. When they are cold they keep each other warm. Why can't the world be like that?
In our modern world I shouldn't have to wish for disabled people to have the same opportunities as everyone else.
My elder brother Saravana passed away very young - he was mentally and physically disabled. Today (29th Aug '13) is his 27th birth anniversary. My mom and I hope our small donation brings a smile to another son / brother's life :)
My wish is to make people understand what life is like with a difference. How I overcame my disability and how I have been able to enjoy life more so that people can accept themselves and make the most of the lives that they live.

It would be great if all people could hear so as to enjoy melody.

My wish is to have a puppy it would mean I would never be lonely.
It would be great if access to education was a level playing field where 'fair' means meeting need not access to the same amount of money because being equal is not about being the same.
I imagine a world where people with disabilities are seen for who they are and not what they are, such as my beautiful cousin who is an inspiration.
All children and young people should have fun, choice and opportunity to explore their own interests. Open doors to make all children feel welcome and that they belong.
I am fed up of always having to explain myself, just because I look normal does not necessarily mean I'm not affected by CP. I would like to stop having to explain and prove my disability.
My wish is that children's play centres had more disabled friendly equipment and toys because then disabled children could enjoy birthday parties and playtime with their able bodied friends without feeling left out or stuck in the ball pool.
I imagine a world where disabled people can play on a level playing field, where they can lead fulfilling family lives and gain access to work and volunteering opportunities.
I imagine a world where I'm not in pain! Mostly I'd just like to be able to give my daughter a normal life where she is constantly looking after me, doing most of housework because she's 14 years old and deserves a normal life. I'm disabled and my benefits have been cut. Thanks Mr.Cameron!
I imagine a world where there are more resources for disabled children with special needs. No more cuts!
I imagine a world where there's no more judgement. People can be accepted for who they are.
I would like everyone to be welcome in society. Disabled people should have the same opporunities as able bodied people!
I would like everywhere to be wheelchair accessible.
It would be great if everybody could do the things they love, whenever they want to - because everyone deserves to be happy.
I find talking to another parent helps on so many different levels. I don’t feel alone anymore and it’s great to talk to somebody who understands what I’m going through.
It would be great if all employers engaged with us because they share our belief that disabled people can make a valuable contribution to their business.
