Do you feel inspired or intimidated when you think about traveling? Do you still want to travel but feel that your disability limits you? Presently there are over 50 million people in the United States with disabilities and over 180 million worldwide, with evidence suggesting that people with disabilities face many barriers in accessing the health and services they need. For example, seniors and baby boomers often have different types of disabilities such as physical, cognitive, having low vision, and even wearing hearing aids could be classified as a disability under the definition. In her latest series, Disabled World Travels, Tracey Ingram, an experienced Clinical Audiologist and Occupational Therapist features specific chronic diseases/disabilities in each volume, and outlines possible solutions to overcome some of the barriers encountered when traveling. How would you like to be better informed and have less stress with travel preparations?
