If you’re a content maker, regionally located and have a disability, apply for the ‘Regional Storyteller Scholarship.’ Applications are open now. This is how I was able to make the series ‘We’ve Got This,’ which was a life changing experience! Go to now

Please listen to We’ve Got This, ’s podcast about disabled parents. Every time I remember it exists, I’m filled with joy. I especially want my non-disabled followers to listen to it.

“I will never forget the first email from a member of the general public who had previously held the belief that parents with intellectual disabilities shouldn't parent, but changed their mind after listening to the first episode.“ -

Being triggered is not the same as being offended or upset. It is a term frequently used to explain the long term damage of trauma, various illnesses and more. It can cause flashbacks, dissociation, blackouts, harm etc. It can last for days, weeks, longer. TWs help us heal.

If you're not sure whether or not something is a trigger but you suspect it might be, use a content warning (CW). Common trigger warnings are around violence, abuse, harassment, rape culture, bigotry etc.

My walker got me through yesterday’s con!!! I’m so appreciative of it for when I want to walk with support and show off my cosplays but still have a quick spot to sit and rest ❤️

This is my cane. I use it when my joints hurt or go all jello-like. I also use it to be more visible to people in crowds and to “lovingly” move those crowds out of my way. It’s also self-defense from weird non-disabled folks who try to touch me.

I used to feel like a fraud for using mobility aids - like I wasn't sick or disabled 'enough'. I now attribute some of my health's improvement to their use. They allow me to leave the house multiple days in a row - and not suffer for it!

without my chair I wouldn’t have been able to get across the entire Brooklyn bridge, enjoy the zoo & museums with these guys, or make it to class to get that degree. I have a love-hate relationship with my chair, but it makes life easier.

Hi Katie! This is a rotating account, so the above tweet wasn’t from me. I’m not sure who tweeted it, but might know?

Many disabled people need computers and other technological aids in the classroom, so I cant stand suggestions for full tech bans. It’s ableist & overly simplistic. I think we need more creative, innovative solutions.

Work toward inclusive education instead of separate schools for disabled students. Make every school accessible to disabled staff, students & teachers. Lots more funding for aides, & teacher training re disability. Smaller classes. Oh wait was I meant to choose 1 thing?

Whenever you share inspiration porn, you’re telling a disabled person in your life that you don’t actually see them. At best, they’re an idea for your own advancement and at worse you’re perpetuating a stereotype they have to live by. These things aren’t benign.

Got my first cane a year ago & had a lot of internalized ableism with it. I hated my body for needing it & felt it made me unattractive. I've realized I was wrong. It's my lifesaver & gives this attractive disabled body freedom! I'm so thankful for it.

I don't have a photo as of yet, but I am a brand new cane user and it has been helpful when I have dizzy or light headed spells. I can't wait to finally be able to use it when I'm exploring cities. Less pain, I hope!
