Freedom to Move: Deep Sea Diving in a Wheelchair!

For people who struggle daily with mobility, having the freedom to experience the same types of movement and exploration is just as much of a human need as anyone else. We have come a long ways in how we have made things more accessible but we are no where near where we should be. This is an amazing story and video. Sue Austin shares her experiences on TED. We really just don't understand how much we relay on our freedom of movement each day until it is gone. I absolutely love how she traced her movements and created designs using her wheelchair. This all gives us pause as to what barriers we should be breaking down for the people we support. There are no limits unless we put them there!
