Emily Eaton was born with severe cerebral palsy. Denied access to classes at her local school, she and her parents challenged the local board of education for her right to be educated with non-disabled children in a regular classroom. Her case took years and went all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada in the late nineties and is considered an important step in the fight for inclusive education for both physically and mentally challenged people. Emily went on to graduate from high school, proving the skeptics wrong. Emily's fight to be treated like a "normal," everyday kid in a regular classroom, at a time when children with CP were segregated, was groundbreaking. Her story makes her an amazing role model for children everywhere—whether they are living with a disability or not.
