College how I miss thee

I came across what appears to be a wonderful link I’ve been asked to share my own experiences of my education with you by one of the readers. I would like to start by saying this is my personal experience and should not be taken to think that this will be the case for everyone. I went to a well established college, in terms of supports for persons with disabilities be it learning or otherwise, they had a full department devoted to it in fact with trained social workers to support students through their educational process: be it on an educational, disability-related personal or other level.

Good day

I hope this post finds all of my faithful readers blessed by what was a joy filled holiday.  I would like to take this time to extend what I don’t feel can be conveyed in words. I have been asked why I started this blog and I honestly have no answer, aside from a hobby which makes me expand my brain power and knowledge base.

I’ll be the first to admit that the spelling and grammar of this blog, isn’t pristine. This is the case usually because my brain is often in overdrive, and then unlike the teachings of my education, I don’t go back and edit before posting something, I am sure this is only reducing my credibility as a blogger. Thank you to my faithful readers, for sticking by me. would you all please help me out by providing the link to my blog in an e-mail to friends and family and to other bloggers post me to your blogroll it would be GREATLY APPRECIATED! If you do decide to post me to your blogroll let me know and I’ll do the same in return! Thanks!

On to holidays with someone who has a disability. I travel with my family to visit extended family; this means that the accommodations are not conducive to use of my wheelchair. This in part is why I keep my walking ability up, without it I simply wouldn’t be able to partake in a lot of the gatherings and other social functions within private residences.

Do you ever have difficulty with people not believing you because they associate the concept of CP with those severe cases?   

I received this yesterday from a reader. My answer is as follows:   

 

peers. In other words my peers assumed that I MUST be in that class too. As I got older this stigma became easier I went to bigger and bigger schools as I got older and with larger, more diverse schools (Including students with physical disabilities and not intellectual ones, like myself) came more understanding. The short answer is yes I am misunderstood! I hope that answers your questions able bodied with them by my category visible disability I was often grouped in an invisible social the commonality of students, by virtue of chanellegedGrowing up the only disabled student in a mainstream school that had a class that was for developmentally
