'Wheelchair kids' is an unfair term

Published 28/03/2014

I was surprised and disappointed to see the reference to 'wheelchair kids' on the front page of the Belfast Telegraph (March 25).

I do not believe that the Belfast Telegraph would refer to adult wheelchair users as 'wheelchair adults'.

A wheelchair is a device used to aid mobility; it is not a descriptive term for children with limited mobility.
