We have always worked with children and adults with cerebral palsy. Each day, we learn patience, resilience and true joy just by seeing&working with them.

Today, we celebrate their resilience and ability to push on even when the environment around them isn’t that conducive & enabling.

We should all work on making our homes, communities, schools safe and inclusive of children with disabilities.

International Youth Day

Dear Youth

Take the good
Release the bad
You've learned enough to survive
Now encourage yourself to thrive

Stumble through learning
Displaying your scars
Your allies will see those old wounds
Your loves will love them

Be bold on this journey
It’s required
After grappling with ideas
Make your assertions loudly and respectfully

“Have fun.
Be yourself.
Don’t hold back.”
And life will give life back

CAN THE VICIOUS CYCLE OF POVERTY AND DISABILITY BE BROKEN? 15/04/2021

CAN THE VICIOUS CYCLE OF POVERTY AND DISABILITY BE BROKEN?

Disability and poverty are closely linked. An estimated 1 billion people (15% of the world’s population) live with disabilities and 80 per cent of them live in developing countries. Ironically, people with disabilities are often left out of Economic development programs, while they belong to the poorest of the poor.

But can the vicious cycle of poverty and disability be broken?

HOW TO TALK TO KIDS ABOUT DISABILITY INCLUSION 15/04/2021

HOW TO TALK TO KIDS ABOUT DISABILITY INCLUSION

our conversations about disabled people don’t have to center 100% around differences. You can also point out similarities, whether it’s a stranger in a wheelchair who’s picking out the same brand of ice your child likes or a friend from school who’s in the same club.

Point out similarities - your friend has ADHD but also loves playing chess like you do, Those similarities matter to make the connection that whatever differences may be presenting are a part of who that person is but not the entire picture.

Your providing care and support to some one who truly needs it the most and helping them becomes more independent and confident in theor own abilities. We are exceptional in this field because we go an extra mile to use all sorts of skills to raise above Disability.. #simplestepsfoundation #specialneedschildrendisability#chooseinclusion

Do you still see/meet your childhood friends? Are you still in contact with any?
Going back to childhood memories can sometimes be a good stress relief.

These beautiful photos of Two friends were taken durring yesterday's Outreach in one of the slum communities we support with rehabilitation and sensitization on Inclusion.

Disability visibility is an important step towards Inclusion. An Inclusieve environment that only reacts to accessibility requests after they are made can leave alot of Children Living with Disabilities Un-supported. #chooseInclusion. #simplestepsfoundation

Using eye contact is an important nonverbal communication behavior that most of us use automatically in social interactions. However, as you describe, making eye contact with others can be very challenging for some people with autism– adults as well as children.

The answer to why this happens is difficult to answer because research and clinical experience produces a mixed message as to how much emphasis we should place on teaching and reinforcing this skill. In many cases, they describe being distracted and unable to focus on the conversation because of this insistence.

As #SSF in our interactions with Autistic children We’ve come to learn from them that – when others give them leeway to communicate in amore-comfortable manner (without eye contact) – they can engage in conversations and participate in school, work, and social interactions just fine.

This Week I had the opportunity to talk to parents raising a child with Dwarfism. As an expert to get their perspective of raising a child with special needs.

When Thomas was born in the hospital with achondroplasia condition, his parents spent the first few hours saying "achon what".
The fact sheet was handed to them by a pediatrician and it read death in the first year is uncommon." What did it all mean?

They were all puzzled and tears all over their eyes, . ..

To cut the story short, The doctor advised them not to cry in life if you have a child with special needs, if you cry every time someone points and stares at your child. You need to be ok with his Dwarfism so that he can also be okay with it. That has been our driving force of mainstreaming disability in the slum communities of @Kampala-Uganda #Mainstreamdisability #donate #faithoverfear #wheepnot #inclusivecommunity
