Welcome to the SSD Blog!

The SSD Blog posts are intended to share our upcoming events, workshops, programs, news, and to spark conversations between SSD members and the wider disabled community.

Some of the published blog posts, posted below, are collated from multiple responses from public participants, either SSD members or Disabled community members. If you would like to add your thoughts to our next blog post, or write your own, email our Research and Communications Coordinator here: ssdcomm@uvic.ca

We are interested in hearing your personal experiences and/or reflections on each blog post theme, and what you’ve learned about yourself and about being disabled in your own bodymind.

For more information about the blog posts, please see an in-depth guide here: SSD Blog post overview
