Invisible me

For any of my readers who know me in the offline world this post will come as a hard pill to swallow,
and for the parents who faithfully follow my blog it will as well. Recently when speaking about being a student with a disability in the mainstream school setting I talked about a photograph that was taken from my elementary school. I know I spoke about it in child’s play or not, and now I want to try and come up with concrete solutions. This may be me and my perception but it appears the milder the CP the easier it is for the kids to assimilate into the social aspects of society with emphasis on the school setting. The minute the chair is brought in is MORE visible and with more visibility there seemed to be more isolation. It got easier as an adult as I understand that it’s usually that people assume, and don’t want to ask questions for fear they may say the wrong thing, or offend me in some way. I find this funny that people understand an accident victim and are less afraid to ask them questions then me who has been dealing with this my whole life! Okay I am done ranting

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. You can follow her on Twitter or Facebook
