Different Ability™ Podcast Episode 32

Are you ready for a breath of fresh air?! Well this is the episode you want to listen to! Veronica talks about giving kids opportunities to learn about people that are different than you and boy does she have some inspiring stories to share!

Communication is key for Veronica. She talks about how we need to take opportunities to talk to kids about people’s differences! If a kid sees someone different, don’t pull your kid away and pretend they didn’t ask, take that opportunity to talk about all of our differences and if the person with the disability wants to talk to your child, let them! It’s a great opportunity to learn!

Veronica Shier’s Bio

Life has been anything but predictable or ‘normal’ for me. I have lived through the peaks and valleys of life. Some chapters I wished I didn’t have to go through, but they got me to where I am today.

I was born with Myelomeningocele (aka Spina Bifida) & Hydrocephalus. Childhood was full of hospital visits, dealing with bullies, numerous invasive surgeries, and trying to enjoy childhood.

Growing up in a world not designed for children with disabilities was very difficult, not to mention I grew up in Fernie, BC… a dream destination for the most athletic, outdoor adventure seekers. I struggled to find where I belonged.

Buddy Bench

If you’re lonely and want someone to play with, all you have to do is sit on this bench! That will allow other kids to know to be inclusive and ask that child to come play with them!
