    I would really like to stop collecting stories about my son being discriminated against in Medical Settings, but I think that would require some in depth anti-ableism trainings to happen. I cannot count how many times I’ve had to call patient satisfaction lines to report that medical staff were not capable of presuming competence, no matter how many times I ask them to include him in the conversation, no matter how many times I tell them that my son can understand everything they are saying and deserves to be treated as such. I am spearheading an effort to create a training and am wondering if any other families might want to join me, or share insight and ideas based off of their own experiences to help get a better idea as to what all should be included in the training?
