Barriers to print

If you can’t think of the limitations you’re forced to overcome? Think of the various social implications, you can’t read the menu at a restaurant or fill out forms you need. Or for me personally as a child it was those moments during elementary school when I couldn’t read where I’d sit there quietly faking it.  The next visit for an eye exam required an adjustment in glasses which then made the process of learning to read that much easier

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

    Great to read about the “Barriers to Books”.

    Yes, the social implications are huge.

    When a young lady was writing about punctuation, I wanted to remind her of the 1 in 6 people who might have literacy difficulties/disabilities/barriers to print.

    There is another Chinese-American young lady who is (was recently) experiencing barriers to print.

      I’m glad it does. :-).

      And I saw a blog today called


      It is by Mary.

      Perhaps something to have in your blogroll.

      She talks very eloquently and truthfully about the reading and writing barriers she experiences.

      And a whole new world she has had in podcasts.

      (Saw it as a link on David Hingsburger’s website and clicked it).
