AJ Nanayakarra discusses Wheelchairs and Personal Space

Oct 24, 2019 | Disability Care News

AJ has been in a wheelchair for 25 years. He discusses in this video how to interact with people who use wheelchairs without making it awkward.

  1. Don’t lean or hang things on a someone’s wheelchair
  2. Don’t put your foot or hand on someones chair
  3. Give me the same personal space you would if I was standing, people tend to fill in the higher space that I don’t take up because I am sitting
  4. Always ask before assisting someone.

Disability etiquette means treating someones chair as their own personal space.
