Support for family and friends of people who have members with a physical disability. So you want to be of support, but are unsure how to be?

tips for offering support

I can’t give you a cut and dry cookie cutter response, don’t you wish that life was just that simple? I do at times.
My best advice is to simply ask what would be helpful. What you can do to be of support. You may be surprised by the answer it could be something like if you would make a meal that would be nice because I am overwhelmed. I can’t predict what the answer will be and the truth is the answer, will be unique to every family so you won’t know how to be of support until you ask.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled. You can follow her on Twitter or Facebook
