Using the internet to find your voice

I think I first understood the power of the internet to share one’s life experiences when I first learned of Carly Fleischmann on the TV show Ellen. Carly a teenager is non-verbal because of autism. Carly decided to change the world’s view one word at a time by using her computer to act as her voice and shares her unique perspective from inside the world of autism. She is one of many reasons I started my own blog. I have realized who better than someone with cerebral palsy  to write a blog about life with cerebral palsy.

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.
