Here is a quote located on the "About" page on the web site for Whizz-Kidz, a service organization helping children with disabilities and their families in the UK.
Whizz-Kidz is all about giving disabled children and young people the independence to enjoy an active childhood – at home, at school and at play.
By providing them with customised mobility equipment, training, advice and life skills, we actually give them something much more important; the independence to be themselves.
"The independence to be themselves"...while it may be the case that many of the children served by Whizz-Kidz may never be truly independent, the ability to be "themselves" is what truly matters.
Wouldn't you agree?
