TV Characters with Disabilities

Have you noticed an increase in the number of #TV characters with #disabilities? If you have, it’s not your imagination. There are 109 such characters being played on #prime time this year out of almost 800. My concern is that the majority of these roles are being played by individuals who do not have disabilities. Of course, they do call this #acting but wouldn’t it be nice if #SAG, the actors union would insist on the authentic and accurate reflection of the people these characters are portraying?
