Disability Awareness Meeting - The Office US video

Click the link in our bio to read my latest blog post, which is all about our trip to @stokemandevillestadium for a @wheelpower_official event. .
It was a fantastic day, which allowed people living with a disability to experience different wheelchair sports! I went thinking I wouldn’t be able to join in with most of the sessions, but I was surprised to see how each of the sports could be adapted! Are there any sports you would like to try?🏏♿️🏀 #accessyourlife #wheelchairreviews #wheelchairuser #assistancedog #disabled #caninepartners #ehlersdanlossyndrome #invisibleillness #qualityoflife #loopwheels #quickiewheelchairs #disabilityawareness #stokemandevillestadium #wheelpower #wheelchairrugby #wheelchairbasketball #wheelchaircricket #wheelchairshooting #wheelchairboccia #wheelchairtennis #wheelchairarchery #accessibility

I think it’s an understatement to say we have been blessed with an amazing and supportive preschool for Jacob. It truly takes a village... parents, teachers, aides and administration who support and love each child in that classroom. And Jacob is loved. Hard. And he loves hard in return. 
Today Jacob had a play date after school with one of his buddies. This sweet little girl told her mom “Jacob is my best buddy.” “Buddy” is her word for friends who are boys. The two laughed and played together for hours. Running around, climbing in tents, racing cars down tracks, and laughing. Beautiful. Infectious. Laughter. They were adventure seekers, imagination climbers, and 💯 kind. A true friendship they have. My heart is full. Too full for words. Because words don’t do justice or capture their friendship...

Living a contradiction. 
When you are blind but still do things, people forget. People say ignorant, cruel things. People doubt you. Just because I've lost my vision, doesn't mean I have to sit in the same spot all day not do anything. I still get to live my life- it's just different. Things may take me longer. Things may be alot harder for me. Things I used to do - like picking up dog poop or doing the dishes now aren't just my least favorite chores, but they are now extra hard. I miss how easy it was before... I wish the things I used to take for granted or complained about- now I just wish I could do them as I once could. But, for now, I can't. For now I need to be persistent and creative to find ways to still get stuff done. It's okay I need to stop and take breaks. I need to remember that it's okay to feel all the feelings. It's okay to remind people what you can and can't see. I have been so grateful for my Group sessions with CNIB. Talking with others experiencing vision loss has been so good for my broken heart. Peko always snuggles up and settles in for the sessions too. If only she knew how much I appreciate her. 😭💖🙌💖 #wedontdeservedogs #suchagoodgirl #cnib

When I got this piece of artwork from Corina at @talesfromthelitterbox , I started to cry immediately -- not only because it's incredibly beautiful at first glance, but because when I looked closer I was blown away at how she captured every single detail so exquisitely: the shape of Ruby's eyebrows and nose, the bow of her lips, the white patches on Stella's breast, the M on Dot's forehead. And she brought in our two wonderful friends, @meetmayacat and her sister Dragon. This would truly be the experience of Ruby's lifetime if it came true! 😂 
When I asked Corina why she chose this particular mashup of ladies for her drawing, she said: "Someone recommended me to follow Maya because she was super cute and would be a great character for my little personal project "Peculiar Pawls", something parallel from Tales from the Litter Box intended to encourage "difficult" (pet) adoptions and embrace differences of all kind.  THEN, one day, I see this video of an impossibly charming girl, Ruby, receiving Maya's book and I was instantly in love of her also. One day she went into surgery and I was very touch by the totems she choose to help her go though all that. Among her variety of tresures, she picked Maya's book. Wow. I knew right there I had to reunite both girls on an ink." Of course, Corina couldn’t leave out Dragon, Stella or Dot!

At the bottom is a quote, from Ursula K. Le Guin, "to be whole is to be part". Corina said she selected that quote because, "we are interconnected pieces of a greater good. We boost our selves with the right surroundings and beings, we're better together. So this bunch of super powered girls are that to me, not only for what I could manage to draw, but the story behind every one of them." I pinch myself every single day that SO many incredible new people continue to come into our lives to bless us with beauty, support and love. If you're not already, I hope you'll give @talesfromthelitterbox and @meetmayacat a follow. 💕#talesfromthelitterbox #art #illustration #bettertogether #catlover #doglover #acceptance #love #inclusion #disabilityawareness #raregemruby

I love my scars! I've been to hell and back to get them. I love showing them off when I can. They are a part of me and if you don't like them or think they are gross..... Well fuck you! 
Couldn't take a photo of my back so here's a photo of my side scar.

The #AusOpen is currently on, so @dylanalcott is the ideal candidate for #BigFanFriday as he has been blowing up my phone with all the awesome things he's doing. I first met Dylan when we were both children, just happy to be paying sport, but at a national level. It has been brilliant to watch him be successful as part of the Rollers (Australian wheelchair basketball team) and go on to become ranked number one in tennis (winning several Australian Opens). More recently, I've been listening to him on Triple J, heading him speak as a founder of Get Skilled Access (which kicked me into a whole lot of the disability advocacy that I've done over the last few months) and his book 'Able' is on my 'to read' list. Keep smashing it mate!

Tying shoes, brushing teeth, washing hands, making food, etc. are all tasks that may need to be directly taught to kiddos on the spectrum. Best method to teach these skills? Backwards Chaining 🔗⠀
•⠀
First, a task analysis must be completed. Swipe right 👉🏼 to see an example of a task analysis sheet. A task analysis is a break down of all the required steps in a skill; like tying your shoes 👟 or making popcorn 🍿 often times people take advantage of the complexity of these skills because it has become so automatic. Once a task analysis is completed, a baseline of the child’s skill is collected and then you can finally start teaching the skill!⠀
•⠀
We want to start with the last skill first for several reasons but one of the largest reasons is reinforcement. It’s much easier to reinforce the last skill (at the end of the task) than interrupt the child completing the first skill to offer reinforcement and then requiring them to continue on until the last skill is complete (YIKES 😣)! A HUGE mistake we can make while teaching these skills is talking to the child while he/she is completing the task. It’s natural to do so but it can become confusing for the child and therefore they’re more likely to get frustrated and not want to continue working on the skill. ⠀
•⠀
It’s called backwards chaining because we are chaining multiple steps together to eventually complete a whole task independently. What multi-step skill has your kiddo learned from backwards chaining?! ⠀

“My son was able to find seasonal part-time work with the help of an Independent Facilitator. He now knows that when you work you earn money. I am now aware that my son can work. I feel that this support is geared to finding employment by understanding the strength of my son so he can be successful.”
– Parent

Finding meaningful employment isn’t only about enjoyment and completing an activity, Independent Facilitators focus on cultivating livelihoods by clarifying people’s vision, discovering strengths and gifts, supporting people to expand their experiences and skills and reflecting on what’s working or what’s not!

Let’s talk advocacy. Back in 2011, Val was staying in an apartment complex and it didn’t take her long to realize that this apartment building had no wheelchair parking. She called the property manager and asked for a call back multiple times to no avail. In her last voicemail, she finally gave the property manager a deadline and explained that, if she didn’t hear back by then, she would contact a disability rights attorney. On the day she had set as the deadline, she was pleasantly surprised when she woke up to this view. Leave us your advocacy stories and successes below, no matter how big or small! P.S.: we have another advocacy success story that should be especially interesting to our Ohio followers so keep an eye out for that, too!

Last year, Dr. Rovito heard about @gr8eightgives through a friend, and immediately contacted us to volunteer his services. Right now, he’s in Haiti visiting our affiliated orphanages to provide direct therapy and collect baseline data for us to refer to when we return with our team next month. Sometimes I’m left speechless by the people who come in our lives, and all they want to do is offer their help, with nothing in return. This is what it’s all about. Thanks a mil, Doc.
*****
Please continue to spread the word, you never know who may be interested in lending a hand.

Dr. Rovito is one of the chief residents at the Harvard Medical School/Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital program working at locations such as Spaulding (#2 rehab in the U.S.), MGH, Boston Children’s Hospital, as well as other outpatient clinics.

Autism testing was ridiculous. 1,000 questions(instead of doing it in the time of my appointment. I snuck out crying and took it home to finish and still didn’t finish till the next morning).... literally.  And two hour one-on-one. Ugh!! .

According to new research from @accentureus, in partnership with @disabilityin and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), companies that are inclusive of people with disabilities have 28% higher revenue, 2x higher net income and 30% better performance economic profit margins.

If you're taking part in a challenge event why not choose The Poppy Factory as your charity to support. For some skydiving might be a step out of their comfort zone but @Red_devils_freefall_team are excellent at jumping out of planes. There are many other ways to support us and your help enables us to get more veterans with #mental and #physical health conditions back into meaningful work. #throwbackthursday

MOMMY, I WISH YOU DIDN'T NEED A WHEELCHAIR⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Eight words that when put together really crush my heart. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This sentence has been said to me multiple times over the last couple of years, but this last time especially hurt. This time we were at her dance studio where I'm sure a couple people overheard it. Usually when she says it, it's just us and we have a little talk. This time I became flustered. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
She had dropped something on the floor and I asked her to pick it up. I told her I couldn't reach it easily. That's when it came out. I instantly felt like everyone was looking at me, even though I'm sure they weren't. I could feel a little tension and awkwardness in the air. I calmly replied "I know, Belle, me too, but this is how it is. Please pick it up." I didn't make eye contact with anyone and even pretended like it wasn't even said when I then starting chatting up my friend that was there. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
These are the moments that I have dreaded. It's not that I don't want it said it public, that part doesn't bother me as much. I feel awful that my kids wish as badly as I did that I could walk and "be like all of the other mommies". ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We've had lots of discussions. I let her ask any and all questions. She's seen all my scars on my feet and down my back from surgeries. She's still young though and notices more than ever, the things I am not able to do. It truly breaks my heart. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
On the upside, she also tells me daily that I am "the best mommy ever" and "the best mom she ever had". She loves me. She doesn't want anyone else as her mommy, so I'm doing something, or lots of things right. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Everyone is different. No one is perfect. We're all a bit perfectly imperfect and that's okay! ⁣
⁣⁣
Do you have similar experiences with your kids? Share in the comments, I'd love to hear them! - they don't have to be disability related. ⁣

We are so thankful to all who give of their time and talents to help further the mission of DHR.

This past Saturday, we hosted an appreciation event for some of our closest supporters, bringing together top donors, long-term volunteers and Voice for Choice monthly donors, and the result was absolutely stunning!

Check out the photos for our finished art piece, a collaboration of over 50 individuals, celebrating the uniqueness of Down Home Ranch. The concept, event space and instruction was so generously donated by Ashley and Kyle Smith, owners of @theclevertiger Art Studio & Gallery in downtown Elgin.

It's a truly wonderful feeling when you have friends as special as Down Home Ranch does. Thank you to all.

To the beautiful anonymous, self proclaimed “Fan Girl” - I GOT YOUR CARE PACKAGE

Hat, make-up eye shadow & powder, brushes with Stimmy glitter, colouring book & scented pens. 
I’m wearing the hat right now (love a good beanie to keep my head warm) 
I can’t stop looking at the glitter brushes. 
I can’t stop thinking of your kindness towards me. Unexpected & whole over joyed... “Fan Girl” - I want to send a video message of thanks to you (my email is agonyautie@gmail.com and I’m easier to reach on Instagram) 
What did I ever do to deserve this love and acceptance? I can’t wait to get back to work next week, to help as many people as I possibly can through education & awareness xxx 
I have the best Tribe/Clan ever

From Pennhurst we see two sides of humanity--one which is kind and one which is cruel. Cruelty leads to the stifling of the human spirit and an inability to overcome, but kindness leads to growth. Though summing up the needs of people with disabilities is not that simple, it gives us a valuable guide for the root of what is necessary. Move forward in kindness.
