    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.

      Wednesday Kevin shared a 31 Days of SMA story regarding service dogs. That brought to mind another topic. Service dog fraud. More and more this is becoming a problem. People are trying to pass off pets as service animals for various reasons. This is harmful to those of us who do have legitimate service dogs. Sometimes it can be dangerous. Many times it just creates a poor impression of service dogs in general. In my case so many people were claiming therapy and service dogs that the city quit offering free licenses to those of us with service dogs. Luckily I haven’t had any negative incidents out in public, but I’m guessing it’s only a matter of time. I’m attaching a link to pledge against service dog fraud https://secure.cci.org/site/SPageNavigator/stop_fraud_pledge.html This is the reputable organization where I got my service dog. Have you had interactions with fake service dogs? I’d love to hear your stories.

      Coincidentally, yesterday, a family member of mine said she’s going to try to make her dog an emotional support animal. I’ve always considered the whole “emotional support” stuff as pretty much nonsense. I’m not sure what the laws are, but it seems like exploiting a loophole. It’s not something I support, but I don’t get too hung up on it either.
