Functional diversity

This concept was developed by the Spanish Independent Living Movement (Foro de Vida Independiente) and, unlikely other pejorative terms like “handicapped” or “disabled”, it emphasizes that everyone has their own functioning model (how to move, to communicate or to express). Inequality stems from discrimination against those whose functional differences are mistakenly classified as “less valuable”.
