TED Talk by Elise Roy – When we design for disability, we all benefit

I found the talk mentioned below very interesting. We often forget that, as disabled people, we might have experiences that may be different from the norm.
Our experiences could sometimes be negative, but this speaker sheds some light on how disability could help to benefit those around us.

Here is the description from the TED page:

“I believe that losing my hearing was one of the greatest gifts I’ve ever received,” says Elise Roy. As a disability rights lawyer and design thinker, she knows that being Deaf gives her a unique way of experiencing and reframing the world — a perspective that could solve some of our largest problems. As she says: “When we design for disability first, you often stumble upon solutions that are better than those when we design for the norm.”
