It's not very often that you get a chance to rave about great support when it comes to coping with disability.
Which is not to say that there are not lots of great folks and organizations out there who do 'get it' and provide fabulous support to families with disabilities.
It may be the fabulous caregiver or personal support worker you know, doctors and staff at a hospital, teachers who really know how to help a child with learning disabilities, the disability insurance agent or lawyer who makes sure you get the financial support you're entitled to, or the non-profit staff who dig up disability grant programs and applications.
Not to mention helpful family and friends who help with driving, babysitting, a chance for respite or just a friendly shoulder to lean on.For the most part though, most of us rarely have the time or energy to do much more than remember to mumble thank you at the time.
And, let's face it. The reality is that dealing with the disability and relationships with all sorts of health professionals and other experts is hugely time consuming.
So here's a way to help you say thanks and also help others.
Every time you rave about what DOES work, it will help other people and organizations learn how to do things better.
Most people and organizations do want to help families with disabilities, but may not know how. Reading your positive reviews can help guide the way.
It's also a great way to say thanks in a very public way.
Unlike rants, feel free to name names. Or, if you prefer to protect their privacy, you can talk about the role they play in helping you cope with disability.
You don't have to register or even give your name. Just tell us your story.
