Table Manners and Beyond

Recommended by a female SCI professional. This website provides guidelines for women with various disabilities to instruct their health-care providers doing pelvic exams how to accommodate their disabilities as many women with disabilities get little or no gynecological care due to lack of access or attitudinal barriers. It has, however, not been updated in some time. The SCI Guide editors have not found much information on this topic online, so it is worth listing here nonetheless!
