On May 7th each year, we are charged with breaking down obstacles on National Barrier Awareness Day.
The Brain Injury Association of Maryland is a nonprofit organization that provides help, hope, and healing to Marylanders who have sustained a brain injury and their families, through resource coordination, prevention and awareness programs, education programs, self-determination, and advocacy.
The intention of this day is to promote the rights of people with disabilities around the world.
My disabilities are dynamic (fluctuating) and I have learned that…when I am not using a mobility aid, a lot of people don’t know I’m disabled.
