The reality is we all use technology daily in fact, I think it would be really hard to get away from, with how much it is used in our modern world. In this post I want to talk about how to overcome social isolation by using technology.
For adults this can also be an issue. Sure the social implications can occur, but as an adult I feel it to a lesser degree. The most common problem faced by adults is difficulty in getting employment. I think it’s sad, that otherwise capable adults are not given work because of how they get around. Really?
I think in the case of kids, in my opinion the main reason kids deal with social isolation is because their peers struggle to stay patient enough to wait until they are done communicating.
I also think kids struggle when it comes to feeling included in play, where the game revolves around physical movement because they feel they cannot keep up; at least in my case I never felt like I could keep up and as a result in these situations I struggled to feel like I fit in.
I think one of the barriers for adults with disabilities is accessing gainful employment. It has been my experience that if you have a disability, you will most likely struggle to find employment. It is my perception that this because employers will take the able bodied person over someone with a disability who has the same qualifications will most likely not be chosen.
My perception of society in terms of disability is that there is still a level of discomfort. I don’t know how to rectify the situation if you have any suggestions let me know.
The solution for kids is an innovative one. I have written about it several times on the blog, it comes in the form of a website called ability online. I know what some of you are thinking in terms of safety, but if you go and read other posts on the subject I think it will help put your mind at ease.
I don’t know what to suggest with regards to the employment situation for adults with disabilities, what do you think we could do to improve?
How do you or your child feel the effects of social isolation in your own life? How do you work to overcome them?
