Talent comes in all forms. As parents, we try to give our children a wide range of experiences and hope they find their way enjoying the arts, sports, or whatever it may be. I’ve struggled sometimes to find what interests my child but also how to support her abilities. Art in all forms is a hit but not everything is possible to do. Regardless of how that journey goes, we still love watching the talents of others.  I was recently impressed to here of a production out of Vancouver that opens doors and possibilities.

“Theatre Terrific is a fantastic small theatre company that is focused on doing productions that include performers with physical, mental, educational and developmental challenges alongside performers without challenges.” says Lois Dawson, general manager. As part of their relationship with Vancouver Fringe, this year’s performances will be site specific in the heart of the festival at Granville Island.  They will feature custom puppets by Tim Gosley of The Muppets.

If you get the chance, check out this production. It’s appropriate for all ages and is wheelchair accessible. Click below for more information.

Let’s Be Wheelisitic is a blog designed to open communication, share and create change through parenting, awareness, inclusion and advocacy. Over the years people have encouraged me to use my voice and experiences with my daughter to help others with or without disabilities, or parents of children with disabilities. This blog is my way of doing just that. I hope you will find this site enjoyable, educational, helpful, and rewarding.
