FAQ

How is Live Solo supposed to help the disabled community?

Live Solo is designed to be an online resource for young adults with disabilities to use as a guide to their own independence and self-empowerment. We are building a lifestyle brand for PWD in mind first. A lifestyle that is positive, authentic, and possible for disabled people to achieve in a way society hasn’t supported the community at all. All content that is available on Live Solo is specifically curated by people from the disabled community with their fellow disabled counterparts in mind. Because of this, new visitors with disabilities, navigating through Live Solo can be confident in knowing that all information shared on the website is created to support their independence journey with their disabled experiences as top priorities.

 

Are the bloggers medical professionals?

Not all of them. Live Solo focuses on using a peer-to-peer model of sharing disabled experiences with each other to support their journeys. However, the chosen bloggers were specifically curated and handpicked by the Live Solo team based on their ability to share the experiences that are in line with the principles of The Solo System and mission of Live Solo. Any articles or content developed by medical professionals are marked with the [ x ] symbol to indicate that the creator is a professional who is giving professional recommendations.
