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

  1. Writer’s block!

    What an ugh of a thing.

    Have some good journalism/commercial writing/short story coursebooks in one of my cupboards.

    “Educating Yorkshire” was a good TV show – “Mushy” was able to make a public speech.

    Hope Google+ hangouts help.

    Took a cognitive style test: 56% concentration – 90 spontaneity.

    Received a copy of a peak body magazine yesterday.

    Any camps or intermural activities coming up, Laura?

  2. Time management has become a consistent battle for me since I started freelancing five years ago. It’s hard to make the most from each day without an external structure in place.

    Regarding writer’s block, sometimes the best thing is to take a mental break and stop pushing yourself so hard.

    I am hoping that you or one of your readers can help me, and maybe this will give you some ideas also. Long story short, I was blessed with a student with quad CP in my classroom this year. I teach significantly cognitively impaired students, and I quickly realized that he was not cognitively disabled, only very physically impaired. He unfortunately has not received an adequate education up to now. It will be a long battle for me to get him into an appropriate class (another long story), but he’s 16 and I don’t want to waste any more of his time. I am doing all I can to help him learn to read, speak with a new SGD, and write.

    My question is about helping someone who is non-verbal to read. Do they hear the sounds (phonemes) letters make in their head? For instance, if I teach him that A says a like apple will he be able to then later sound out words like “cat”?

    Sorry if my question seems dumb.

      Hello, Freddy:

      Your query made me think this could apply to any communicative block/puncture. (as in the lumbar kind).

      Adequate educations are very important, because they help people with the supports they need in life and help to help our/their selves.

      Something between the hearing and the moving (of the lips; throat and other speaking muscles) and co-ordination of the brain.

      Letter-sound correspondence is tricky too, especially in English. If there is no substantive sensory and cognitive trouble … I think the brain can learn fast, and it grows a lot, especially in teenage years. (It was great to see that number sense of the kind in algebra peaks at 35 years).

      Strategies would be good – so be an identifier and solver of problems. Be one step ahead.

      Ido Kedar is about the age of your student, and I am trying to think of other teenagers who live outside of verbal experiences and conventions. It would be good to have co/extra-curricular work if that is not there already. For you and for your student.

      ISAAC (Europe) and the Anne McDonald Centre (Australia).

      SGD = speech-generating device? It must transmit and receive like any communicating device.

    Hey Laura,

    I don’t have any blogger-specific tips myself, but I found this article with tips for bloggers with writer’s block. Hope this helps:

    Writers block is something I consistenly struggle with. I can go weeks without writing a thing. However, taking a break seems to energize my thoughts and my writing starts to flow once again.
