He is "reclaiming the word spastic"

"Laurence looks with a cheeky humour at reactions (and in some cases non-reactions) to the words used to describe disability."

love him, really funny stuff. We use the word spastic all of the time because dd's official diagnosis is spastic diplegia and if she ever hears the word as an insult I just want it be a normal day to day word. I love it as well because when people ask you 'what's wrong?' with dd and you mention the spastic word they go all embarrassed and don't know what to say. wink.
