  • Dose of DeAnn Episode 3: SMA and Accessibility

    Posted by kevin-schaefer on March 14, 2018 at 2:00 am

    In the third episode of  Dose of DeAnn: A Glimpse Into My Life With SMA, DeAnn shares her thoughts regarding accessibility issues today. In spite of laws designated to prevent discrimination against people with disabilities, there are still buildings and areas all over the United States and in other countries which are inaccessible. This topic was recently discussed here on the SMA News Today adults with SMA forum.

    To share some of her experiences with inaccessible locations, DeAnn sits down with her nieces Lauren and Taylor to talk about a few of their summer vacations together. In one instance, they went to a downtown candy store which had a huge step right outside the front entrance. This of course prevented them from going in, and DeAnn talks about how frustrating that was.

    This episode ends with another installment of the Amazon Echo Show challenge, only this time DeAnn brings in her cat Tic-Tac instead of her dog Roy as the challenger. (And just a reminder: we’re giving away 10 Amazon Echo Dot speakers.)

    Be sure to subscribe to the SMA News Today YouTube channel so that you don’t miss an episode of this vlog, and you can also connect with DeAnn right here on the forums page.

    Can you relate to DeAnn’s frustration? Have you had issues with inaccessible buildings?

    DeAnn, absolutely love your video! This is the 1st one I’ve watched. Your nieces are really cute also. I found myself smiling at both your exchange with them and Tic Tac on her challenge. Keep entertaining us & and informing us!

      Thanks Kelly!  I’m hoping the girls will make more appearances with me in the future.  It’s interesting to get their perspective on these issues.
