Thinking outside of the box

When you live without a disability, visible or otherwise, these concepts can be easy to overlook. Truly though, these applications can apply to all walks of life. I think about when I was pregnant and how many normal tasks became cumbersome. Likewise, children and other vertically-challenged people also face obstacles when trying to accomplish day-to-day routine. Naturally, many of us attempt to compensate, but thoughtful design can go such a long way. This podcast is a helpful way to think outside of the uncomfortable box. I encourage everyone to take a listen!

Excellent Inclusion for All Disabilities

So glad I found this podcast! It will help anyone make living easier with ideas for universal design. No one has a guarantee that you will have perfect health and a perfect body throughout your lifetime. Architects, builders and people with a disability, or living w someone who has a disability, will find this podcast useful.
