This post is for all of us with kids/adults with disabilities in our lives. You could be a mother. A father. A sibling. A friend. A grandparent. An aunt or uncle. A cousin. A respite worker. A teacher. A therapist. Anyone. Everyone. This post is for you!
If you could change 10 things that would make your life, your family’s life or you child’s life better, what would they be?
In case your mind is bogged down with a million things on your to do list, here are some ideas to get you started:
· Funding for respite, products, therapy, in home support and care,
· Support groups, advice sources, someone/somewhere to reach out to for help,
· Improved access and assistance on public transport, in fun parks, at airports, in restaurants, in shops/stores,
· New products that make life easier, less expensive, funded by government,
· Greater awareness and understanding of disability, more inclusion/integration, education, research,
· Anything you can think off!!
What are the key things in your life/country/environment that you would like to change or add?
Have you seen change happen? Have you read about Mama Lewis and her quest and success in getting modified shopping trolleys for kids with disabilities in grocery stores around the UK?
Change is possible. It can happen. It starts here.
Please leave a message in the comments about the type of change you need/would like to see to make your life, and your child’s life, better.
I’ll start. Inclusion. Acceptance. Education…Or how about a portable toilet seat that is supportive enough for Sebastian’s needs but compact enough for travel?
