Day 2…

Today we spent the entire day training and getting ready for the campers and their families who arrive tomorrow. It’s late and I’m tired from a long day of learning how to talk to, interact with, and entertain people affected by disabilities. Instead of a long post I thought I’d share with you a quick experiment that we did today.

To simulate what it’s like to have a disability that limits motor skills, we had to button and then undo a long sleeve button-up flannel shirt with purple rubber kitchen cleaning gloves on our hands (very manly I know). Try it, and you will get a small glimpse of what it’s like to be affected by a disability. Here’s a photo from when we tried it earlier today.
