White Sticks That Bark Invented By ScientistsDisability Now

A group of Brunel University Science Professors have won this year’s ‘Best New Accessible Invention’ Award at NAIDEX with the creation of a new aid for blind people. A white stick with a difference- it barks to guide its user in the right direction. Project leader Professor Doolittle said: “Is your guide dog at the vet? Never fear, from midnight on April 1st, 2013, the barking white stick will be here. Buy one of these and your guide dog can become a pet!”

Patients With Cerebral Palsy Advised Against Travel To Australia- Bobath News

We write to inform patients and their families that The Bobath Centre officially advises against travel to Australia for patients with Cerebral Palsy. From London, a flight to Australia lasts approximately 26 hours. We fear that after two flights of this length, our patients will return significantly stiffer. Treating children who are that stiff would simply create more work for us, which we are trying to avoid.

Easter Bunnies With A Difference- The Tablet

Easter Greetings, readers. We hope you will enjoy a relaxing long weekend of Mass and chocolate treats. We would like to invite you to your local Catholic Church on Easter Monday, April 1st, at midday where senior priests will be pushing the Easter Bunny around the garden in his wheelchair to hand out sweet treats to the child in your life. If this child is disabled, we hope they will feel included. For those who are not disabled, we hope the sight of a rabbit in a wheelchair will be an educational experience.
