So far in this series, I’ve focused on the situation that already is:
- the various ways in which disability is portrayed in the media, both positive and negative;
- how a few disabled roles require more from actors than people with certain disabilities can manage;
- how disabled actors who could play disabled roles are often overlooked when casting those roles;
- and contrary to the ways in which disability is often portrayed in the media, how many disabled people are abused in real life.
