The 31st of October is Halloween! Halloween is a time of excitement and creativity for children of all ages. It's the season when they can transform into their favorite characters or go trick-or-treating. But for children with disabilities, finding the perfect costume can be a challenge. That's where adaptive costumes come into play, making Halloween more inclusive for every child.
Before October ends, we hope you take a moment to remember that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! It’s a time to raise awareness about breast cancer, its early detection, and the importance of regular screenings for all individuals, including those with physical disabilities.
Starting your college career is an exciting opportunity. It can also be scary. As a person with a physical disability, there come several challenges. Accessibility issues, such as navigating campuses and transportation, can make it harder for individuals with limited to no mobility to participate.
In June we celebrate Men's Health Month. This is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness and encourage men with disabilities to prioritize their physical and mental well-being. Statistics indicate that men with disabilities often face health disparities compared to their non-disabled counterparts.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month! Let’s raise awareness about the importance of mental health and well-being. Mental health is essential for people with disabilities, who face higher rates of mental distress than those without disabilities.
