    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.

      Happy October everyone!

      In this episode of the Morale Monologue, I’m sharing a video that I did for my physical therapist, Emily. Currently, Emily and I are working on a series of articles and videos for the SMA News Today HCP site. This healthcare professional website is designed for physical therapists, doctors, and anyone in the medical field.

      This series deals with physical therapy and patients who have SMA. About three or four times a year, Emily gets physical therapy students. These are students who are completing their doctorates of physical therapy, or their physical therapy assistant (PTA) certifications. These six-week rotations allow these students to work with a wide range of patients, in both an outpatient and inpatient clinical setting.

      When students work with me, I get a chance to explain what SMA is and how it affects me. Plus, these students feel more comfortable if and when they get a chance to work with another SMA patient.

      Hope you all enjoy this video! If you haven’t already, please subscribe to the SMA News Today YouTube channel. We’d greatly appreciate it.

      Do you have any takeaways from this video? Do you have any questions for me about physical therapy?
