The power of technology is simply amazing! After writing my post about AbleThrive, I had the opportunity to Skype with the founder, Brittany Martin.
Even though Brittany doesn’t have a disability, she understands the challenges people with disabilities go through because she grew up with her father who has a spinal cord injury.
Through her website, Brittany is able to connect people with each other to share ideas and provide any tips or tricks for making life easier. For instance, she asked her father to make a video of how he transfers in and out of bed. Brittany was able to share that video with a guy who wanted to learn how to transfer himself.
Brittany is also looking for advice. She will be getting married in less than two months and is wanting to know how to slow dance with her dad (who is a C6-C7 quadriplegic). You can send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
