Thread: TAB Do you know what this means?

    TAB Do you know what this means?

    I was sitting in my disability studies class and the professor who does not have a physical disability but has done lots of advocacy for the disabled community used the term TAB (Temporarily able bodied). I have never heard this used and I was wondering is this a term is really as common as he says it is?

    I think you'll find it's fairly common.

    "I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."

    Agreed.

    And that's part of the point.

    I think the term makes perfect since and it is something that we have always said about able bodied and talked about, but never really labled them that. I had just never heard it all the years I have been working with disabilities. Thank you for your guys input.
