30th Disability Blog Carnival is up...

..over at Ryn Tale's Book of Days. The theme is "What professionals should know" . She writes that she got the idea:

"
... for this carnival in thinking about the sensitivity and understanding or lack of both by medical professionals regarding what a patient’s life is really like. In my experience therapists, doctors, teachers, school psychologists who have shown true empathy, a willingness to listen, and respect for me and for Ellie have, sadly, been in the minority. I wish more professionals would try to educate themselves about the people they are trying to help.

So that is where I started. But as you will see there are many more places this sentiment extends too, including fashionista sensibilities about wheelchair design".

So go on over and check it out.
