Hiding behind a vail: talking about invisable and learning disabilities which cause social isolation and frusteration!

The social stigma of disability is an extremely interesting concept to me. throughout my life I have faced visible isolation and well misunderstanding in the general context. As a post today

 I want to share some stories about this. People understand physical disabilities in the general term. It is as simple as: she can’t see or he can’t hear or they use a wheelchair because it is difficult for them to walk. The reasons behind which almost seem moot or secondary. But when it is an invisible disability: that is a whole different story. I think it is almost easier to write about ones visible disability as well yes it is obvious that I use a wheelchair the reasons for which you may not need to know or I may not want to share but the fact is no matter how hard I have tried I can’t hide the chair.  

Someone with an invisible disability can hide it. Often they have become so crafty at doing this that they don’t see the signs within themselves that they struggle with getting their thoughts to the page until they moved onto the university or college setting.

 Having this information though, I was able to access adaptive software such as Dragon Naturally Speaking and Kurzweil 3000 for myself both of which I plan to talk about at a later date.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
