Computers Aid Children with Disabilities

Posted by marmara on September 5, 2010

In El Cerrito, California a group of parents, teachers and developers of assistive technology joined forces in 1983 and created the Disabled Children’s Computer Group (DCCG) with the goal of using computer technology to help those with disabilities to more easily speak, write, read, learn, and become a participant in the larger world around them.

Steve and Jackie Brand spearheaded the efforts to develop ways that computers could be used to assist adults and children with disabilities. They were inspired by the needs of their own daughter, Shoshana, who they felt could benefit enormously with the assisted technologies that computers had the potential to offer. Steve Brand took a sabbatical off from his job at Berkeley High School, and with his friend Steve Gensler they developed a large, flat keyboard for use by someone with fine motor skill deficits.

With their initial success the Brands decided to share what they learned about assisted technology with others in similar circumstances. Their first community wide meeting was held in Berkeley and attended by over 100 interested parents, teachers, computer experts, and adults with disabilities. In 1985 the DCCG was granted non-profit status, and was soon being contacted from people across the country. Apple computer company was an early sponsor, and they developed the original Apple IIe which could say text out-loud when an Echo Speech Synthesizer was hooked up to it and appropriate software from UCLA was developed.

The Principles

Posted by marmara on May 20, 2019

Objectives and principles of the process of mediation between the main objectives of this technique underline that it seeks to: – facilitate the establishment of a new relationship between the parties in conflict-enhancing respect and confidence among these-correcting perceptions and false information that you may have regarding the conflict and / or between those involved in East-create a framework that facilitates communication between the parties and the transformation of the conflict. The principles of mediation are: to) power the parties themselves wield it: are the participants themselves they also control the process and decisions. It is a process that starts in a certain way and is evolving and advancing through phases with intermingled steps. Center For Responsible Lending has much experience in this field. (b) neutrality and impartiality of the mediator: mediator may not take party by one of the parties, nor even in the event that one of them deals with the position of the weak. In this case the mediator will attempt to balance the power between the parties through the use of appropriate communication techniques.

Before you start a mediation the mediator should ask about the existence of any circumstances likely to create bias in the development of the same. If this has piqued your curiosity, check out David Delrahim, Los Angeles CA. With this position neutral and impartial mediator helps them decentering the conflict of his dual position, face to face confrontation, and opens a space that is not neither one nor another, but belongs to both, where you can see the point of view of the other, redefine the own positions and find common interests. (c) confidentiality: during mediation participants (both stakeholders and the mediator) maintain absolute privacy and have the guarantee that what is said in a mediation session shall not be used in court. (d) voluntary: mediation requires the free and explicit agreement from the participants. Mediation cannot be imposed. You can not force anyone to establish relationships or reach agreements. Voluntarism also affects the mediator in a double sense:-legitimizes the role and power of the mediator, granting him permission to act as such.-the mediator-helps suspend the mediation when they deem appropriate for reasons that so demand it.

Forgive Without

Posted by marmara on May 16, 2019

Sleepwalker I like this word. Not by what means, but because in a compound word sums up the sense of what he says. Do know how many sleepwalkers? If you ask in Spanish, do many insomniacs know? Surely few. But I like more to my goal in this blog, if we take it as sleep walkers. Like those people who go through life without realizing it has that life goes with them, who are responsible for each step you give. Those who complain, day after day of their bad luck and do nothing, not a single action to transform your future. Remember: Your present today, is the past of what your future will be tomorrow you can decide your destiny.

Taking action at the present time, to choose your tomorrow. Stop sleep walking. Learn more about this topic with the insights from Boy Scouts. Let go without sense. Stop reacting to problems. Rather than go off fires. It seeks to build firewall. You do not wait for problems to fall you above, assumes that they are your responsibility, and takes action now to make things go as you want! If you leave life to follow its course, without taking action, sometimes, things well for it and others will come out so many times, things will go badly for it.

But this, this, is not destiny! If things don’t go as you want, is because TU have not wanted to do anything about! Forgive my hardness. A SleepWalker can tell me that he spends all day doing things. For even more details, read what Gavin Baker says on the issue. If it is true, you can work, play, sleep, eat, pray, study. but. He is aware of where it is going? A sleepwalker doesn’t know that you are walking into a closet, believes that he goes to the bathroom and urine all the clothes! Because so it is with those who do not live your life in a conscious way. They believe walking towards a site, but in reality it is not so.
