“Jeff Erlanger Visits Mister Rogers.” This episode features the remarkable visit with Jeff Erlanger, a young boy who uses an electric wheelchair, explains about his disability and talks about some of his feelings. … It’s not easy to talk about some things, like … disabilities, but the reality of such things is often less scary to children than the fantasies they may have about them.

I have thought long and hard about what I would do if I wasn't in a wheelchair. I really don't know what I would do first. I love sports, so maybe I would play hockey, baseball or basketball. But then I thought about it some more and what I would probably do first is tell my dad to sit down in the wheelchair and I would push him.
