About

My name is Tiffiny Carlson and I’m a writer and blogger from Minnesota. I have a C5-6 incomplete spinal cord injury from a diving accident in 1993 and I’ve been blogging and sharing life with a spinal cord injury, dating with a disability advice and adaptive fashion tips online since 1997. 

I’m the Executive Director of SPINALpedia.com. I was also the SCI Life columnist for New Mobility Magazine for over 12 years (’03 – ’17) and I’ve written dozens of disability-centric articles for sites like the Huffington Post, Penthouse, Playgirl and Nerve.com.

And I speak on issues related to self-esteem as a woman with a disability. I spoke at the Push Nation Fest in 2016 and I was the featured speaker at the Morton Cure Paralysis Fund annual event in 2017. They help bring massive amounts of research funding to SCI research. Please support them via the link above. I also host the podcast, Life After Paralysis.

    powering across the internet! they are the Department of Ability!.. DISABLED SUPERHEROES FOR ALL!!! before i can pls tell you a story pls read this…

    http://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/2015/jul/28/childrens-tv-representation-disability-nickelodoen-disney-bbc?CMP=share_btn_tw

    For 5 years i have promoting, pushing, fighting and drawing a way to promote positive, 21st century attitudes toward disability inclusion! to that end..the D.O.A!
    Our story is sooo unique and so far even the local BBC are behind us! pls watch:

    It would be a huge step for anyone whose a hero to take up our story. The bbc video has almost 30,000 views, we have fans all over the world!
    i have been sending this idea to everyone, many charitires including SCOPE/SHINE/DISABILITY RIGHTSare behind us and scope will be championing us after their
    latest campaign has finished! Charities and journalists and people across
    the globe want to see something like this….it seems only old fashioned or ill informed people at the top are in the way!
    Please, be the first to help us with our cause, remember one in 20 kids have some form of disability, they want to be seen, to be viewed differently,
    This project and its aims have exhausted me, its taken all of me, i am a fighter for disability rights as well as a proud dad and artist,
    please please please dont turn this away like so many, disability isnt scary…you know! its amazing. we just need nationwide exposure and surely someone with
    courage and vision will take up our idea! its an amazing story of trying to effect change! art and disability are my LIFE, We are now on twitter and have Tanni grey thompson, Adam Pearson and Mik Scarlet behind us! also many
    other paralympians!
    emily loves to be interviewed as you can see, please. ITS NOT ONLY A GREAT STORY BUT IF IT CAN GET TO T.V. THE POSSIBILITIES ARE UNLIMITED!
