Some years ago I was watching “moving on” a CBC program that was all things disability

One episode that comes to mind. it was an episode that showed a child playing music using a motion sensor and a tv screen that had coloured dots each dot either represented a note or an instrument and with some movement allows one to create music. Although I can no longer find information on that system it inspired this post.

Finding the joy of music despite physical limitations

In looking for information about the system mentioned above I came across a similar program in the form of an inspiration article that I thought was worth sharing

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.

    Ahhh, to be able to play my flute again. About the only thing I wouldn’t give to be able to play again is my soul. Anything else, they can have as long as I could use both hands so that I could play. Ahhh, such is life though. Everyone is limited in some way or form. We all have our crosses to bear.

    Let us know if you find that information, okay?

    Hi Laura. Thanks for bring up such an important matter. It’s very much needed to ensure the motion sensor capability for disable children and persons. I personally believe that each and every human being has some talent hidden inside him/her. Everybody deserves chance.

    Thanks for the post.

  3. thanks to you both for your recent comments

    Hi, my name is Heather Peters, I am starting a business so that I can write music. The way that I write music is that I have a mac that I hookup these five switches that are on my wheelchair.

    My business consists of beaded creations to decorate your home and cars and for your kids to enjoy.

    Please check out my website and spread the word to your friends and family.
