Happy AAC Awareness Month: Representation

A lovely and innovative person called Tonne has created AAC for their daughter's barbie (from Kmart) and we think it's brilliant! It's so important to see representation of yourself in the community, in media and as a child- in your beloved toys.

This doll was made in the likeness of her niece Gretta, an Australian blogger from On Our Own Tracks. An amazing young woman, and her blog is worth a squiz: http://onourowntracks.com/

image shows:
A barbie in a wheelchair with an electronic AAC device attached to the chair. text on image: Because representation matters: Barbie with AAC. It is so important for all children to see themselves represented in their world: in the media, in their community and in their toys.

Inclusion Alberta

Inclusion Alberta is very pleased to see that our Province’s School Re-Entry Plan emphasizes inclusive education and the provision of needed supports to ensure success in the classroom and “all aspects of school life.”

The following is directly quoted from the Re-Entry Plan:
“The Standards for Special Education define an inclusive education as one where a student with disabilities or who require specialized supports and services is included in regular classrooms and neighbourhood schools as the first placement option. As multiple scenarios are developed for the upcoming school year during the global pandemic, there must be consideration and planning at each and every level for the inclusion of students with disabilities and the impact and potentially unique supports that will be required to ensure their success and full participation in all aspects of school life.“

This is important information for parents to be aware of and to bring to the attention to school authorities when their choice for an inclusive education is being challenged or denied on the basis of school finances or resources.

The full plan can be found at:https://open.alberta.ca/dataset/a3910dd5-d52f-4a7d-821f-a381002419e9/resource/d50970dc-e060-4470-9f7b-0028ff362136/download/edc-covid-2020-2021-school-re-entry-plan-updated-2020-07-21.pdf

How to Properly Celebrate a Civil Rights Law During a Pandemic in Which Its Subjects Were Left to Die: The Americans With Disabilities Act

“So, I have made a compromise: I will celebrate the community that saved my life, not the country that threatened it in the first place."

“Disabled people shouldn’t have to be resilient, but I celebrate our resilience anyway."

“Disabled people shouldn’t have to be creative to combat an inaccessible world, but I celebrate our creativity anyway."

“Disabled people shouldn’t have to shout for equity and inclusion, but the chorus of our voices is a melody that brings me to tears in gratitude."

“So, today, if you’re feeling conflicted or demoralized on this day, the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, I ask that you celebrate this community. I ask that you celebrate yourselves. I ask that you celebrate the elders that have made it this far alongside us.”

Fret not, dear friends, the celebration of the Americans with Disabilities Act is here. Sure, it is occurring during a pandemic that began with major publications disseminating eugenicist theories …

Get your carts...get your clubs...let's golf!
I am so glad to have stumbled upon an old post of a friend of yours. I messaged him and it led me here. We have known for a long time that something was up with our son. Nobody could really pinpoint it. After doing some reading all signs point to angelmans. We have an assessment scheduled for him and I am going to bring up this syndrome with them. Thank you so much for sharing on this page.
Hooray!

Super excited to be learning PODD and talking with Bruce
Well that is a wrap for another year. Now that i have completed the almost 5 hour drive home, unpacked, had a good night sleep i am sitting here drinking my coffee and taking in all the valuable knowledge that has been given to me this weekend. Kathy Look Howery and Caroline Ramsey Musselwhite again thank you. My son is 4 and schooling and his education seems like such a big elephant in the room...and i did not really know how to lead it let alone what to do with it. But you ladies have lessend my anxiety. To the fellow parents thank you for listening, being a sounding board and offering some great insight to my son and growing up with Angelmans Syndrome. To the councilors and volunteers, what beautiful hearts you all have. Thank you for giving my son some great memories. Not only did camp feed my brain and soal but also my tummy, thanks to all the cooks once again you out did yourselves. And last but not deffinately not least...THANK YOU to the sponsors. Truly without you all this would not be possable...or at least not affordable...and not to have this Camp, these Parents, these Professionals, these kind hearts...and most importantly the support all these people give to Me, my Son, my Family would be so sad. Oh and i want to thank Sarah Rivard and Hannah's Hope for Sponsoring my Family. It came at a time much needed. Till next year!
This was Bruce on the way home from Camp...not because he did not sleep...but because he played hard! He joined in a camp fire and singing, scavenger hunt, parachute fun, bubbles, games, dress up and stories...all while using Core Word boards and Devices. The counselors were awesome and made camp fun and enjoyable. Tonight as I tucked Bruce in...early cause he was exhausted, he fell right to sleep.
What a great day. Bruce had such a blast meeting all of you as you golfed through our hole. Thank you for not only your kindness but your spirit and generosity! We can't wait for camp in Sept to learn from amazing professionals and fellow Angel Families. See you all next year!
Such a fun day.
