As I have discussed in the previous posts in this series, disabled people are supported to learn to travel in a variety of ways and there are a variety of things that we can do while we’re out to try to make sure that everything runs smoothly. But for you non-disabled people out there who want to try to be helpful, what can you do? I thought it would be a useful topic to discuss.
On 26th March, it is Mother’s Day. A day when people celebrate the role of mothers. A day when we recognise the contribution that these women make to our lives. There are many disabled women around the world who find ways to overcome their difficulties and still run happy families. So I thought it would be important to celebrate the lives of these women.
Recently we had a chat here at The Aidis Trust about the image descriptions we put on our blog to help visually impaired people, so I thought it may be useful to write a post about why it’s important to have these image descriptions.
So, another travel related post. This time I wanted to talk about the people one meets on one’s travels, because as anyone with a disability that’s visual obviously will know, you find some interesting reactions.
For the first three posts in this series, I have focused on how people with disabilities learn to travel. For the remainder of the series I’ll be focusing on more advanced topics, mainly of interest to our disabled readers, relating to travel.
