Why use Wheel Chairs?

Why do people use wheel chairs?
People use wheelchairs for many different reasons. Wheelchairs enable freedom of mobility, like a car or a bicycle. If we are interacting with a wheelchair user for the first time, it can be difficult to know how to act. We don’t want to accidentally offend someone, but at the same time, we want to be helpful and understanding. The most important thing to remember is people who use wheelchairs are really no different from us.
Golden Rules when speaking with a person on a wheelchair…
1. Avoid making presumptions about the other’s abilities
2. Speak directly to a person using a wheelchair
3. Ask permission before touching the user or their wheelchair
