HubMob Weekly Topic: Disabilities

  1. Princessa profile image85
    Princessaposted 6 years ago

    Thank you everyone who took part in last week's Canadian HubMob.  You did a fantastic job.

    This week we are going to entirely change subject and we are going to HubMob about an issue that affects thousands of people around the world: disabilities. 

    http://i40.tinypic.com/21kle2s.jpg


    Last week I visited a close friend of mine, a bubbly young man who has been completely paralyzed for the last 20 years after a car accident.  I hadn't seen him for a long time, and visiting him and seeing how well he copes with his disability thanks to all the technological gadgets and supporting environment has inspired me to choose this topic for the week.  Let's get the word out there about the latest technological advances that can make living with a disability easier.

    Again this week, you can choose between our Official HubMob graphic or the graphic created by our guest graphic designer Jen King   who has created a personalized graphic for this week's HubMob. 

    Some ideas for a hub on disabilities are:
    Accessibility
    Adapted Sports
    Assistance Dogs
    Assistive Technology
    Colour Blindness
    Disability Rights
    Discrimination
    Empowerment & Respect
    Etiquette
    Hearing Impairment
    Independent Living
    Long Term Care Facilities
    Mental Disabilities
    Rehabilitation
    Sight Impairment
    Stroke Survivors
    Support for Individuals & Families
    Support Organizations
    Wheelchairs & Mobility Issues

    To join this week's HubMob please follow the steps below:

    1. YOU MUST START YOUR HUB CLICKING THIS LINK.  Choose the Answer the Request green button.  Choose the MAKE A HUB ABOUT IT option. 

    2. Choose a relevant title for your Hub to get a good ranking in the search engines, AVOID starting your title with "Weekly HubMob"

    3. If necessary change the category on your hub to best suit your topic. 

    4. Include the HubMob RSS Feed in your hub: http://hubpages.com/question/49352/hubm … ew&rss For more information on how to add the RSS feed to your hub you can click here


    5. Add the HubMob graphic below or Jen's graphic at the start of this thread to your hub so that everyone who reads it will know that it is part of the official HubMob topic of the week.

    http://i43.tinypic.com/rup3mg.jpg


    6. After you publish your HubMob Hub, come back to the forum and post a link to your hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.  Take advantage of the free publicity!


    If you are still not sure about what is a HubMob and the benefits of taking part in one I created this guide http://hubpages.com/hub/What-is-a-HubMo … o-join-one  please feel free to come up with any questions if you have any doubts left.

    In 1991 when my youngest was 7 months old my husband was totally buried in a cave in.  When she was 12 he had his first stroke, others have followed.  Diabetes, two heart attacks, ruptured spleen, broken hip - and I have cared for him, raised four children three who have now graduated university the youngest just starting to work on her degree.

    It will not be difficult for me to write on this topic - it will be difficult to stop writing!  Thank you for bringing this topic with all its many subtopics to the "table".  As my time will allow, as I am a full time caregiver, I will definitely be Hubbing!

      rmcrayneposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      raisingme, the publicity is greatest during the HubMob topic week, but Princessa never closes the question.  It is never too late to submit on a HubMob topic.  You can continue to write on this topic as time allows.  Just remember to start from Princessa's link. 

      As an occupational therapist, I too have a lot to say on this topic, and will likely continue to write on this topic after this week.  Just drop me a message in the weeks to come to let me know that you've published, and I'll add your hub/s to this HubMob roundup hub.

      Power Mobility for Increased Independence

      http://hubpages.com/hub/Power-Mobility- … heelchairs

      People with disabilities often have misconceptions about power mobility.  They may delay the decision to transition to a motorized wheelchair, thinking that it will somehow make them “more disabled” or “less independent”.  Power mobility increases independence, thereby decreasing the impact on quality of life.

      Assistance Dogs for Families of Children with Autism
      The children because of their autism often have tantrums in public. They are stressed and anxious because of the new surroundings and the overload of sensory noise and activity around them.  To the people in the street or shops this is a child who needs discipline not a child with special needs.
      An Assistance Dog is a clear message to strangers that this child has autism and has special needs

      In my years working as a pediatric occupational therapist, people would constantly say “I could never do that!  It would be too hard working with handicapped kids.”  Working with disabled children is pretty easy, and extremely rewarding, because kids don’t feel sorry for themselves.
