Looking for Feedback on Baby Care Equipment
Wednesday, 16 July 2014 09:37

Are you a parent or grandparent with a disability?  Through the Looking Glass would like to get your opinion on any commercially available equipment you're using or have used in the past that helped you care for your baby or young child.  Examples include strollers, front carriers, car seats, high chairs, bassinets, cribs, etc.  We are especially interested in finding out about equipment that was helpful for baby care because of your disability or medical condition.  

This is a very brief online survey -- only 10 questions.  The feedback survey is anonymous, but you can leave your name and contact information if you’d like to.  We will use the feedback we receive to develop suggestions for parents and grandparents who are trying to decide which babycare equipment to get. Please go to the following link to take the survey.

Disability Visibility Project
Wednesday, 09 July 2014 11:36

The Disability Visability Project: A Community Partnership with StoryCorps is a year-long grassroots campaign encouraging people with disabilities to record their stories at StoryCorps San Francisco.  The project celebrates the upcoming 25th anniversary of the ADA in 2015.  Each story session will last about 40 minutes, and you can schedule your appointment in San Francisco through the end of this year (2014).  You can tell your story with a friend, colleague or family member – or you can also go on own and be interviewed by one of their facilitators.  TLG especially encourages parents with disabilities and family members to consider lending their story since so often these voices are not heard from.  To find out more about how you can contribute your story and experiences, please see their website: http://disabilityvisibilityproject.com/how-to-participate/
