People with disabilities don’t need fixing – the world does

New, adaptive technologies can be a tool for people with disabilities – but that doesn’t mean everyone wants them. Ashley Shew is an associate professor of science, technology, and society at Virginia Tech who specializes in disability studies and technology ethics. She joins host Krys Boyd to discuss why promises of a “better life” are discriminatory, and why the world needs to better adapt to the needs of the disabled, not the other way around. Her book is “Against Technoableism: Rethinking Who Needs Improvement.”
