    Planes, Trains, & Accessible Travel With SMA

    Talk to your doctor to determine if you or your child is fit to travel.

    Traveling with a child is never easy. Traveling with a child in a wheelchair is an extra challenge. The first time Leah flew on an airplane, she was six months old, almost a year before she was diagnosed. We have always been a traveling family and once she was diagnosed, we were both hopeful and determined that it wouldn’t hold us back.

    I have always flown with Leah by myself, just the two of us. Call me crazy; it’s OK, I am. There are some things we have learned that have made it so much easier for us.

      In Katie Napiwocki’s latest column, she wrote about going to an event near her hometown, and being mixed up with another individual in a wheelchair. Read this column here

      I know this has happened to me on several occasions, especially with one person in particular. As with Katie, I’m so much more than just the girl in the wheelchair; but I know oftentimes that’s how I’m seen. I also relate to the aspect of being recognized by others more often than I recognize them, because of the wheelchair.

      Have similar situations happened to you? What other takeaways do you have from this column?

      The only time I recall this happening was with a cashier at Fred Meyer who got me mixed up with another guy in a wheelchair.
