Crippen learns to weave his own laptop

Day Care

Many of you will be aware that I rate most Day Care establishments alongside many of the charities that have been set up to “provide” for us. Most of them are run by non-disabled ‘professionals’ who receive a decent salary to basically keep us in our place!

Of course, the term ‘Day Care Centre’ has now been replaced by the term ‘Resource Centre’, but this is about the only change, as they are mainly still run and controlled by non-disabled people.

Admittedly I’m taking the proverbial with this cartoon, but it does deliver the message that it’s the same old same old, despite the new terminology.


Description of cartoon for those people using screen reading software

A sign sits on the wall of a large room that states ‘Day care centre for the handicapped’. Also, on the wall is another sign that shows the plan for weaving a computer laptop. In front of the signs, a young white male wheelchair user is weaving a computer laptop with a perplexed look on his face. Around him are several visitors including a vicar and an older woman. An Asian care worker in a white coat is saying to them: “As you can see we’ve come a long way since the old days!”
