Chris Ulmer used to be a special education teacher. After working with the same students in Florida for three years, he started filming interviews with them and posting them on Facebook. "The students in my class were amazing. They were funny, engaging and charismatic," Chris says. "But the rest of our neighbourhood didn't really understand them. Nobody valued them. I wanted to show off these individuals and help them show the world what they had to offer." His page Special Books by Special Kids now has more than one million followers and Chris travels the world interviewing children and adults with disabilities. And his work has been called "inspiring", "amazing" and "changing everyone's view of normal" by some of the people who have posted on his page.

Our core belief is that travel is a force for good when practised responsibly, that travel enriches those who are touched by it either directly or indirectly. Travelling with a disability requires a lot of organisation, but information on accessibility is often hard to find. Around 50% of people with a disability would travel more if they could be sure more accessible facilities were available. Our goal then is to make Lonely Planet the world’s premier provider of accessible travel information, the first port of call for all accessible travel needs, not only for those with a disability, but for anybody with access issues. To learn more about this mission, see our post from our lead of this initiative (and star of this video), Martin Heng: http://bit.ly/1w0nkvx --- Read Martin's Storify which gives context to his recent trip and this footage: http://bit.ly/lpmartin -- Do you or someone you know have a disability, yet are also a keen traveller?

Solutions For Living proudly presents the sixth episode in Season 2 of our OT-V series: "Travelling with a Disability." Let’s be honest, as fun as vacations are, travelling is stressful. The planning, packing, confirming all the details, getting from A to B, preparing to be away from work or home, keeping paperwork organized…it takes a significant amount of time and effort to put a trip together. Yet, if you have a disability, travelling becomes even more complicated. Travelling with a disability requires very thorough planning, a supportive attendant, and an open mind. We are often asked by our clients about travelling. Can I travel? How would that work? Would I be okay on an airplane? What about getting around a resort or beach? Watch this video for some important pointers to consider. We hope you enjoy this episode of OT-V! Please subscribe to our channel for more informative and helpful videos.

A Journey to Inspire People Whose Disabilities Prevent Them From Leaving the House. YOGYAKARTA, Indonesia -- On May 10, 2013, Sri Lestari, a woman who lost the use of her legs at the age of 23, will embark on a journey from Jakarta to Bali on a modified motorcycle. Over the course ofher 1,212 kilometer trip she will visit families of people with disabilities toempower them with her story, and her journey will culminate with a presentationat TEDxUbud on June 1, 2013. When Sri Lestari was 23, she was in an accident that left her paralyzed from the waist down. For 10 years Sri was house-bound, assuming she had lost not only the use of her legs, but her freedom as well. That is, until she got her wheelchair and modified motorcycle. Now Sri lives a full, independent life, and is employed as a social worker by the Indonesian office of UCP Wheels for Humanity, a non profit organization dedicated to increasing access to mobility and improving thequality of life for people with disabilities in developing countries throughout the world. It is estimated that there are more than 2.4 million people who require a wheelchair in Indonesia, many of whom, spend their lives entirely at home because they cannot access basic mobility equipment or modified motorcycles like Sri's. UCP Wheels for Humanity Executive Director Michael Allen comments: "We are proud to support Sri's journey from Jakarta to Bali. As part of her work with UCP Wheels Indonesia, Sri enriches the lives of children and adults with disabilities every day, and we know that her courage, optimism, and success has the potential to inspire thousands more. She has shown how mobility and opportunity—combined with an undeniable passion for life—can enrich our world, and we are excited to follow her adventures when she sets off."

Do you have dreams of traveling internationally for study, volunteer, or professional experiences? Here's some tips on how to make it work financially from people with disabilities who have done it. Transcript: H'SIEN HAYWARD: I have had to be creative with funding, especially since I have this mission to get to 50 countries as soon as I can. NARRATION: The National Clearinghouse On Disability And Exchange Presents…Funding Your Travels CERISE ROTH-VINSON: So funding is one of the most popular questions people have about going abroad, and it's a good one. It's an important one because people with disabilities often don't have access to the same resources. NARRATION: Cerise Roth-Vinson works for Mobility International USA. CERISE ROTH-VINSON: Look for financial aid on your campus. A second source of funding for people would be to look at vocational rehabilitation. If they can demonstrate that their study abroad plan also relates to their career goals, that's an excellent, unique way that people with disabilities can support their study abroad program. NAOMI LATTANZI: The accessibility office in my college was a really good resource. NARRATION: Naomi Lattanzi is student with a systemic disability. NAOMI LATTANZI: They can help with — finding out what accommodations are possible and making sure that you get them. CERISE ROTH-VINSON: So if you're a person who's thinking about maybe volunteering abroad or perhaps you wanna do an internship abroad and you're thinking, how am I going to fund that, some of those programs are of the least expensive that are out there. HABEN GIRMA: I wanted to go to Spain. But I didn't have the funding to bring a communication facilitator with me. NARRATION: Haben Girma is a Deaf-Blind advocate. HABEN GIRMA: So I reached out to Mobility International. And — by coincidence, there was another woman with a disability my age who volunteers as a Spanish English Translator. I'm still amazed that we actually did that. CERISE ROTH-VINSON: The National Clearing House on Disability and Exchange is really a one-stop resource for everything from A to Z that you can imagine about disability and international exchange.

Maya and Jada recently sat down with Chris of Special Books by Special Kids. As a special education teacher, Chris initially began a blog about the special needs children in his classroom. So inspiring, he developed a following of people requesting for their children’s story to be told. Now, Chris travels all over the world interviewing people with special needs to create a world of acceptance and understanding. Recently, he sat down with Maya who shared how she supports her twin sister Jada and her journey with ataxic cerebral palsy. Maya and Jada: When you see Maya and Jada for the first time, it’s hard to deny they’re beautiful. In watching them together, it’s easy to see them being apart of a Gap Kids commercial for modeling as they are that gorgeous. However, seeing their interaction with each other is breathtaking as it is clear that they love each other. The bond between twins is a unique one on so many levels. Imagine having a “built-in” best friend, as that is the case of Jada and Maya as their mother, writer Niki Marsden, shared that Maya is Jada’s biggest advocate. On her blog with Complex Child, Marsden revealed that days after her twin girls were born, a nurse in the NICU informed her that Jada had experienced a brain bleed–a rare pediatric stroke. Jada is a stroke survivor and she continues to make gains in her life as she battles with ataxic cerebral palsy. Ataxic cerebral palsy is caused by a brain injury to the cerebellum before, during, or shortly after birth. Children with ataxic cerebral palsy have a hard time controlling their movements. Today, Jada is continuing to strengthen her physical abilities as well as communicating all with her sister Maya by her side. In their interview, Marsden revealed that what one doesn’t have, the other one has as they balance each other out. Despite the fact that Jada’s unable to talk, she has her own way of communicating and Maya understands what she needs. Using the term, Jada’s language, Maya constantly talks to her sister and Jada responds using expressions and pointing. Maya revealed that she likes when her sister gets excited because she knows she’s happy. Like a true twin, she shared that when her sister is hurt, she is hurt too. Marsden revealed that Maya often assumes the caretaker role of Jada and tries to help her as much as she can. Often times Jada receives more attention than Maya which Maya understands. An advocate for her sister, Maya revealed that she wants Jada to live with her when they get older as she plans to always take care of her. When Chris asked Maya what she thought Jada would be when she grows up, Maya confidently smiled and said that her sister could be lot of things. Right now, she’s focused on helping her sister walk and talk by being her constant companion. With Maya’s love and encouragement, no doubt Jada will continue to make progress. The love that these sisters have for each other will touch your heart. Watch their interview below and follow Jada’s story on Facebook at Jada’s Journey.

The largest outbound sector in Australia, this is a generation of adventurers who don't see age as an obstacle. Yet research conducted in 2009 indicates that the boomers face a higher rate of disability than previous generations. It's estimated up to 40% will retire with a disability. In this story, 'Baby Zoomers' reporter Kahla Preston meets two Australians who are passionate about making travel accessible for people with disabilities, providing the kind of support and information they say is lacking in the tourism industry.

Kim Eberhardt Muir, MS Program Specialist, Spinal Cord Injury Program, Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (Formally the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago) https://facingdisability.com/expert/kim-eberhardt-muir-ms If you can, have an idea, or have a dry run, I call them. We do airport trips a lot of times for patients, and I’m talking about the airport, you can travel in many ways, but airport seems to be the one I get the most questions about. If you can kind of put your mind at ease, and see what it would be like from the terminal, all the way up to where you’re going to get on the plane. I say right from the ticket counter, all the way up. As far as bathrooms—knowing about your bowl and bladder before you go on that flight, and how long it’s going to be, and preparing accordingly. Are you going to make a 4-6 hour flight, and what is your bladder care schedule with that? Knowing about things like sitting for too long a time, how you’re going to do your pressure reliefs when you’re on that airplane. Those are great things to talk to your therapist about, and also in support groups. Traveling by car or train, very similar things--thinking about your skin, thinking about the distance of the trip, how long before you’ll have a break using an accessible restroom if that’s going to be available. Those are all things to think about.

Sunita Sancheti was only 16 years old when she lost all sensation below her waist following a spine injury due to medical negligence. She had to drop out of college as there were no facilities at her college and awareness among her professors was low. This made her aware of how indifferent Indians were to the needs of people with disabilities. It was when she had a chance to stay in the United Kingdom that she became aware of the possibilities for PwD to move about as freely as abled people if the right infrastructure in place. She works with NGOs has travelled across 28 states and more than 40 cities across India to spread awareness about disabilities and make tourist places and universities more accessible.

But many don't realise that some simple help with tech can completely change things. “Our job is to help people with such impairments overcome those barriers,” says Joanne. "Ergonomic equipment is probably one of the most important things we recommend for people with physical disabilities as well as dictation software," she explains.
