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.
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:
Empowerment & Respect
Long Term Care Facilities
Support for Individuals & Families
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.
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.
I would like to take part in this.Can we use some hubs already written? I
have done a hub on Three ENT developments. Sound bridge.ballloon angioplasty for sinusitis and bionic year. Any way, I shall be quite delighted to post more on disabilities
this looks like a great topic, princessa. I would like to join in on this one.
i would like to participate as well on this, as i do have some ideas!
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!
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.
Hey Princessa and rmcrayne, great topic I will do my best to contribute to this week. Jen your graphics are really good.
Just to clarify ...
"This week" starts and ends when?
I really want to participate and hope the week doesn't end for, well, a week. LOL
Also, this is a competition, right? Can someone point me to the right place for the competition guidelines, explanation, etc?
Mam, go to the first post and read Ms Princessas instruction, you can also read her hub about joining the HUBMOB -- she put the link on the first post here, I hope you can figure it out and this is not a contest Mam
THanks for catching this one Maita! I was working on my bookmarks.
Lynda the week starts each Monday, but it is never too late. Scan back for some of my posts. See my post on this page to raisingme. This question comes up most every HubMob.
Yes great topic and will be doing my best to write a few hubs here this week too
So, if the Q comes up all the time, I'm not a TOTAL idiot, huh? LOL
Thanks guys. Short term memory issues and all... *eye roll*
I'm interested in this HubMob also, but wont have time to write until after Wednesday. So many ideas to choose from!!
Living Life as a Paraplegic
This is an inspirational story about my brother Clark Rone who became a paraplegic with no feeling from the chest down after being shot by a gang initiation in 1993. I hope you enjoy it!
I think I would like to take part in this one too Good topic Princessa
This is a great topic and I am really going to try and do a hub on this issue.
Applying the Disease Concept to Chronic Mental Illness and Substance Abuse
http://hubpages.com/hub/Applying-the-Di … o-Chronic-
People with a chronic mental illness, like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those with alcohol and drug addiction, are often judged for their illnesses. Examine these ailments in the context of the disease concept.
when I try to go to your hub it says it does not exist. Maybe it is offline for a while?
Wow. Thanks elayne. Not sure what happened. It's not been "unpublished" by me at any point. Maybe it's that I went to bed at 3 a.m. Couldn't sleep. Got up. Wrote that hub. Went back to bed at 9 this morning.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Applying-the-Di … ance-Abuse
This is agood topic. Plenty to write about and useful. I will be back later
I thought I would try to create a hub about blindness.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Blindness-Being … y-impaired
Then tomorrow I hope to follow on with one about guide dogs and then one about PAT dogs. My eyes need resting for now though Bye till tomorrow
I just published my hub about a very special girl in our family http://hubpages.com/hub/Living-With-Spina-Bifida
I would love to hear from you.

here's my hub about my caregiving experience and how important a compassionate attitude is. I've been wanting to write about this for a long time - so glad to have this encouragement to do so!
http://hubpages.com/hub/Compassionate-C … e-Disabled
Good morning, I've just checked the disability category page http://hubpages.com/topics/health/disabilities/2266 and as you can see some of your newly published hubs on the topic are already front page.
Great work HubMobsters!

Still can't figure out how to get the Hub Mob logo onto my hub.
Hi Jo, here is how to add the logo, rss feed and the most important part: how to answer the request correctly: http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Write-a-HubMob-Hub
I hope it helps. Thanks for taking part in this week's HubMob.
I am finding this process downright cathartic! It never ceases to amaze me how much one learns when one shares their knowledge with others. Bless you for this week's topic - Hubpages had already begun to change my life in the two short weeks I have been a part of it - but this....this is liberating!
Thank you for supporting the HubMob. I am more than happy to hear that this topic is being helpful to you. I understand how you feel, being part of the HubPages community also changed my life in many ways.

Here's my contribution:
Family Retreats - A Ministry for Families Affected by Disability
http://hubpages.com/hub/Family-Retreats … Disability
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.
here's my third....exit me singing "and another one's gone, and another one's gone, another one bites the dust,....."

I have posted my first hub for the Hub Mobsters weekly topic.
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

Working With Disabled Children and Adults-It’s Easier Than You Think
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.
Everything About Wheelchair Basketball
http://hubpages.com/hub/Everything-Abou … Basketball
I wrote this as it is a fantastic sport and I have great respect for the people that play it and no other hubs have been written about it on Hubpages!
