Living Life In A Wheelchair

Advice For Sharing My Mobility Challenges With Youth And Children
[ Friday March 24th 2017 at 1:55 pm ]

I just finished a short appointment. With my knee joint issues worsening I wanted to ask a friend who is a counsellor an appropriate way of sharing my knee issues to the children and youth I see who use the pool. After I got out of the pool last week a boy I had played with looked puzzled when I was using a wheelchair.

I was on the right track. For children 11 years old and under the word 'weak' is something they are able to relate to. Talking about pain to a child this age exceeds their development.
