Yesterday it occurred to me that my life has been enhanced by technology.
The social inclusively of technology
We are all aware of the mainstream social networks such as MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter. But have we ever stopped to think about the smaller ones like: Ability Online, Knowledge Safari, Exceptional Family TV the three smaller communities I have listed here are probably one of several others like it, but these are the ones I know about.
What these three sites have in common is connection among the disabled community whether it be something as simple as opening an email at three and the morning to find words of encouragement, looking for an accessible place to go and finding a review from someone who has been in your shoes or knowing your not alone. All three can help you. The internet can literally bring a world of possibilities and shared experiences through your front door which I bet is helpful to the parent of a special needs child. I know for myself finding like minded and shared experiences whilst growing up with a disability was extremely helpful.
I can’t comment on the quality of these communities for which I spoke as I don’t know a lot about many of them. I just thought I would make what I know available to you!
