Your self-directed employment assistant
Last month I addressed traveling for work if you have a disability, and this month I’ll continue the trend with air travel. A little over a week ago I returned from Los Angeles so air travel is still pretty heavy on my mind. In a perfect world, traveling with a disability (in my case, a physical one) would be flawless and smooth and require very little worry. But anyone in my position knows this is hardly ever the case. From seat accommodations to medical equipment, to making sure the correct personnel all are in communication with each other, air travel is especially stressful. I came across this very useful resource from the U.S. Department of Transportation that talks about the rights of passengers with a disability, the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA), and a bunch of other links and detailed guides. Hopefully these will help some of you prepare for your next trip!
