    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.

      Per DeAnn’s recommendation, I bought an Amazon Echo Fire Cube for myself, and it arrived yesterday. It’s great! With it, it essentially makes my tv a smart tv. Currently I’ve got it set up to play Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu and DC Universe. It’s incredibly easy to use, and relatively inexpensive, especially considering the things it can do. Watch DeAnn’s video if you haven’t already.

      Is anyone else using this device? Do you have any questions about it?

      What’s your favorite feature so far?  Anything you’re not fond of with it?

        Amazon Prime and Netflix are working great. The only app I’m having trouble with is the DC Universe one, but I think it’s the app itself. It just recently became available on Amazon devices, so I think they’re still working out the kinks. But other than that it’s great!

          Some apps do work better than others.  If one locks up on you, you can go to settings and force stop in app management.  You can also clear data and cache if they still are being a nuisance.  Do you use the Fire TV app to navigate at all?  It works great if the voice commands aren’t working.

          I have the remote that came with it. If there’s an issue I’m ok using that. The buttons are significantly easier to press than they are on a regular remote.

      It’s funny, I was at my Mom’s over the weekend. She has my old Firestick. Countless times I almost started talking to it like I do with the cube. Thankfully I caught myself, but I kind of missed it.
