"Planning a Trip to Disney for a Child with Disabilities or Medical Needs"

 

We recently published a free resource guide titled "Planning a Trip to Disney for a Child with Disabilities or Medical Needs", which I thought would be useful for your readers who are planning a trip to Disney.

Disney strives to provide a memorable experience for every child and has been consistently ranked as the most accommodating theme park in the U.S. for families of children with special needs.

Our guide provides information on the types of accommodations and services Disney provides for each type of disability such as:

  • Cognitive Disabilities
  • Visual Disabilities
  • Behavioral (ADD/ADHD)
  • Health (Diabetes)

 

We also included updated information about the Disability Access Service pass, and the required steps to obtain one.

Sleep disorders:
A high number of people living with special needs suffer from sleep disorders. Unfortunately, since their expressions of discomfort or fatigue are often masked by other symptoms of their disorders, many go untreated.
My team at Tuck.com has been working on a library of information about every facet of sleep, from sleep disorders to information about how children’s sleep needs change as they age.

Building a Good Life with a Bad Credit Loan

Having bad credit can feel like getting a flat tire on your way toward a solid financial future. It can also make you feel like you’re the only one stranded on the side of the road with no help in sight. You could convince yourself that things may have been the same had you taken a different route. But even if your situation was unavoidable, it doesn’t make it ideal.

 

The good news is, you’re not the only one, and you have options for getting back on track. Choosing a bad credit loan can help to soften the blow of a tough financial season. And it could help you bridge the gap between a long-term plan and a practical step toward rebuilding credit.
