The ABCs of parenting with an SCI
Abstract: Panel discussion includes three individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI); one injured before becoming a parent, one after, one injured and becoming a parent at the same time, and one spouse. They share their tips and experiences on how to manage parenting with SCI, what role they took, whether or not it changed how they parented, different ways to connect with kids, what they missed out on because of the injury, the impact it may have had on their children, and how important it is to have and accept help and support from extended family members. All panelists agree that being able to get around the whole home, and not just in the front door, allowed them to fully participate in all family activities. Run time: 1 hour 19 minutes 30 seconds.
