Practical Challenges

When we think about disabilities, most people often go to the emotional aspects of it. But for families, many issues are in fact simply about logistics! How do you deal with schedules, helpers, adaptations, and getting around? Just who does what? And, just plain and simple, how can you possibly get done all the things that need to get done?!?

In this week’s Speechless, we see what happens when Maya is sick and Kenneth has to take a day off. It doesn’t just rock the boat: it rocks a few worlds.

So we hope our experts this week – one a parent advocate and one a daughter – give us all some insights and thoughts that help us all navigate all the very practical challenges which flow through a life with disabilities.
