Response to Beyond a genetic condition: Becoming more compassionate about myself as part of the ‘normal diversity of the human community’ — Tiffany Sostar


This paper is a response to Nichola Garde and Mariangels Ferrer-Duch’s interview ‘Beyond
a genetic condition’ (in this issue), and describes a potential narrative practice based on the
themes in that interview. By inviting rich conversations about experiences of disability within
social contexts, space was made to explore the ways in which conversations, including both
the language used and the communities and companions we are in conversation with, allow
community members to stand against ableism and treat our own disabled selves with care.
