cerebral palsy in the classroom things to consider

I have made adaptations throughout my life and in school was no exception, when I was a kid, I had difficulty seeing the blackboard in the classroom, I don’t think this had anything to do with anything other than my glasses weren’t right at the time (that’s for another blog post sometime perhaps) but the point is I couldn’t see the blackboard which made learning to spell when I was young a challenge.

My very wise educational assistance decided to bring the spelling words physically closer to me in the form of a piece of cardboard that was laminated the spelling words and other words I needed to use would be written it with dry erase markers making it easily changeable as needed. They other minor but very useful thing that was done was to use a name stamp instead of having me write my name on things being that when I was young my dexterity was an issue which made the simple task of writing my name not so simple.

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.
