Disability Community on Facebook

Disability community is crucial and is a powerful way for those of us with disabilities to make friendships from within our own respective disability communities and cross-disability.

It’s a way to find solutions to problems that are disability-specific, receive support and a laugh (or three) at memes that only those who have our same disability truly “get.”

In a world that is often difficult for us to navigate and a world that has many of us internalizing our own ableism, Facebook disability groups can feel like islands of safety and solace.

And in those islands of safety and solace are spaces to learn and unlearn, opportunities to challenge ourselves to grow and connect in new and exciting ways.[/vc_column_text][vc_message color=”info” message_box_style=”3d” style=”square”]A note about the “safe spaces” of facebook groups: please read the tips at the end of this post on ways to stay safe in Facebook groups.

Please check the group settings before you get too comfortable in them! Remember that what you say in a public group can be seen across the board, for anyone (- including your employer) to see!

Here they are. I hope you find what you are looking for.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

3 Things to Remember When Engaging in a Facebook Group!

      1. Privacy settings

While enjoying a group, it’s always a good idea to triple-check the group privacy settings.

If a group is public, it means that everything you post can be seen by all of your friends and all of the world.

2. Remember that people can take screenshots of what you post

Not to to get paranoid about what you post, but it’s a good idea to keep that kernel of truth in the back of your head.

People take screenshots. In some groups they ask that you not, or have members promise to not take screenshots, but promises can be broken. Think before you post!

3. All the Common Sense Stuff

      • Be careful with who you message or become friends with from groups.
      • Report things that look suspicious.
      • Be wary of anything that involves money.

    I have a friend with a teen who is primarily wheelchair bound from osteogenica imperfecta. She is struggling with her differences from a “normal” teen anxiety about high school. Are there any teen support groups out there where teens can get together online or in person to help each other out?

    1. I don’t know of any teen-specific groups.It’s a good idea, though – and my not knowing of any doesn’t mean there aren’t any out there! Maybe run through FB groups and search?
