Adam Farris dislikes using the word disabled or disability because we don't like to label people. instead we should use the words unique or unique abilities or differing abilities. In the past we have used the words retarded or disabled, but in reality we are not disabled, we are all just different people with a unique ability. We would like the world to understand that all of us are alike in different ways!!
