Special Needs Media Alert! -Push Girls Sneak Peek Tomorrow April 17th

Push Girls, a 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 they give viewers a sneak peek tomorrow, April 17th at 10 p.m. ET. The program debuts June 5th. 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Now, if we could just get the media to quit using the outdated terminology 'wheelchair bound,' (and 'confined to a wheelchair'). 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.
