social inclusion: including those with disabilities in your life


social inclusion

I understand that disability can be daunting in terms of attending private functions at people’s homes because of issues of accessibility. So why do these parties have to be at others homes I mean if your house is set up to meet the person who has a disability why not be the host? The children playing with others may be physically easier for them 

Growing up, I always preferred when my parents would host gatherings because the environment was set up to meet my needs. This meant, for example that I could use the washroom independently. In my case it also meant that playing was generally easier because my parents’ house is all one level. To me, this made play and general social inclusion easier.

You may wondering why the layout of my parents’ house increased social inclusion?  I was obviously slower moving up and down the stairs especially when i was a child this was a source of frustration as I struggled to keep up

what would make social inclusion easier for your child with a disability? Do you notice a difference when you host a party verses when you take your child to a party about their level of interaction in terms of play?

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.
