As a child of the ‘80s, I enjoyed watching reruns of “Kids Say the Darndest Things”. I think of that show when I get questions from children asking me about my wheelchair and disability.
I’ve always enjoyed talking with children about my disability. They ask some of the greatest questions like “Where can I get one of those wheelchairs?” and “How fast does it go?”
I showed off my wheelchair to some of the children at Vacation Bible School a couple weeks ago. One young boy pretended he was pushing me as I drove around. My across-the-street neighbors have taught their kids about disability awareness issues. Their children help classmates with disabilities when assistance is needed.
