Crediting the makers of the adaptive technology, she sums it up with, ". places that don’t welcome everyone are disable, ideas are disable, planning, education, design. not people. 1 billion people. 1/7 of the world. inclusion is not a favor." She added that her son is like any other boy today and we need more such tools to make everyone inclusive in this world. The story is indeed inspiring and gives a thought about how we need to treat people with disability with equal respect and develop ideas to help them too.
