destroy the concept of a disabled person in the world

Hi guys, maybe the thing I wanna mention is something that you come across it many times, but I wanna ask you, how we can destroy or at least change the  way people think or react toward one who has some sort of disability, 
I mean every one of us as individuals has some potential which, at first sight, it may not be obvious, and for this kind of reaction some have low self-esteem. 
I think a lot and in the end, I found the basic concept of disability is misunderstood because we have more talent in other aspects.
So what's your suggestion for changing this meaning in people's minds?

    Hello @behi and thanks for making your post.

    I think it's mainly about education, people who have negative perceptions of disability should be made aware of the positive aspects of it, and that it's not all just doom and gloom as they may think.

    Of course being a disabled person brings challenges but it also brings skills and experiences that are incredibly valuable in many aspects of life, such as friendships and relationships, and employment.

    Hi, @Ross_Scope yeah, I agree with you. But how we can help to raise this awareness among public people? , you know it was bothered me once ،when I was at street and a man with sunglass and with cane come to buy an ice cream and another customer teases him, like 😂 You are blind for  real. 

    And I was😳😡

    You know I'm always calm mostly in these situations

    But recently, I find out we should do something about these behaviors.

    You know I don't like to mention  my weakness because it is not that much visible. Because people act pathetic in kindness or harsh way as I mentioned.

    But I really like to do something about it to change the culture.
    Any suggestions I would be happy to hear about?
