Understanding Parenting with a Disability

Thank you to Chris, our Disability Trainer and Advisor for writing this post about understanding parenting with a disability.

I’m a wheelchair user who can’t walk at all and have been since I was 7-years-old when I caught polio. But very early on in adulthood I knew I wanted kids. I hadn’t thought it all through then but the thought was always there.

I graduated and started to work (as a school teacher), and eventually got married.

By this time I was very confident of what I could and couldn’t do in work, at home, around town, on holiday and so on. But the prospect of bringing up children was something else entirely.
