Here's another new site with great potential. Scheduled to premiere October 1, Disaboom is hoping to become the preferred destination for the disability community.
There is a community of disability blogs, forums, notice of jobs, events, products, restaurant reviews including accessibility issues from people who should know, and more. There is a health section with information about specific conditions including spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, low back pain, amputation, and more. Oh, and did I mention multiple sclerosis? And there is more. And even more.
This week I wrote about children's perceptions of wheelers. What do kids actually see when they see someone in a wheelchair?
Disaboom. Dis - disability. Boom - explosive impact. A disability does not make a person insignificant. A major thrust is to create power for our community, inspiring others through the knowledge gained by experience. Thanks to Tim Pointdexter for that explanation, though he leaves it open for our own interpretation.
This site is new, still in its forming stage, and open for suggestions. Visit Disaboom. Have a suggestion? Let them know.
