    More and more I find that everyone has various abilities and disabilities. It is our fault that “normal” has such narrow parameters. The slightest variation from this designation and there is the label: “different”, “disabled”, and “abnormal”. Worst of all, “retarded”, making me think of the term which is applied to engine combustion. Retarding and advancing the spark makes the engine slow or quicken, the same effect with labeling children.
