Special Needs Media Alert! -Push Girls to Debut in April

This new program
produced by Gay Rosenthal for the Sundance Channel about four Hollywood models who use wheelchairs, sounds promising, especially since Rosenthal also created the popular 'Little People. Big World.' I'll be checking it out when it debuts in April. Special note: three of the four women acquired their disability due to auto accidents, a sobering reminder that disability can happen to anyone at any time (not to mention the real dangers of distracted drivers and driving while drunk).

Now, if we could just get the media to quit using the outdated terminology 'wheelchair bound.' People don't live in wheelchairs. They use them to get from Point A to Point B.

A special needs activist's work is never done.
