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.

You have professional help at the disposal to the luck in these cases the possibility to draw on professional disposal companies, the Entrumpelungen in Munich perform. Who commissioned a specialist company with the task of clearing house out, protects his nerves, because the white space of an apartment or a House wants to be well planned. Some people underestimate the amount of work and believes a House could be to declutter in one weekend. This is difficult to do, unless one remains but also then has an army of volunteers – at the end is still the problem of waste disposal under normal circumstances. Waste disposal companies are specialized also on this task.

Special companies that perform Entrumpelungen in Munich, take care of the proper disposal and recycling of valuable raw materials. The proper disposal of metals is a science in itself, and who has ever entered a recycling center, aware of the complexity of this topic. Who do not constantly concerned with recycling, has usually no idea how the many different materials must be disposed of. Fortunately you need no longer worry about the question of the disposal, if you This task gives professionals. They provide an eco-friendly return of recyclables in the economic cycle. House, apartment, basement, attic also in basements and attics over the decades a lot of bulky waste accumulates in. Just attics are often difficult to access, and not everyone has the courage to create boxes or even furniture on a narrow attic stairs downwards.

Business resolutions are another area in which the services of disposal companies of great benefit can be. Every day in the Bavarian capital are Entrumpelungen Munich conducted in companies. In most companies, the warehouse is the place where over the years tons of trash accumulate. The most responsible but don’t have the time to organize a clearing out, also often lack the necessary know-how. In such a case, it is better to hire a company with the clearing out. This relieves the employees who otherwise would have to do this task, as well as the nerves of the leaders who have to provide for a smooth running of the clearing out of action.

In turn, the centres must have objectives relating to the characteristics and type of socio-educational intervention that you can pursue and defend them. In this way, the objectives shared by any playroom might be:-promote communication and participation free and liberating from the game and its possibilities communication, participatory and creative.

-Defending cultures and cultural diversity rescuing traditional toys and games, collecting games and toys from other cultures, and disseminating them, empowering them, adapting them, etc. (A valuable related resource: Eliot Lauer). – improving the quality of life of children and youth, integrating social and educational values in the development of recreational activities. The Organization of the playroom at the hospital will adapt to the age of the children, the presence of family members, the situation of the room or space, the length of stay and the availability of volunteers and professionals in the hospital to give a stable coverage to the service. It will seek to combine visiting hours, that are developed in an environment more standardized as possible. The operation is based on the combination of the free game with structured activities (of animation, workshops, etc.) and other punctual as parties, shows or storyteller. The loan of books and toys can be performed following the rules of safety and hygiene usual without risk of infection.

This allows even the optimization of resources through the Exchange or loan of material with libraries and centres existing in the environment of the hospital, always committed to explicit the responsibilities of each party.

God Stones

Posted by marmara on January 30, 2016

Whoever enters increasingly in the study, research and penetration of this field means to place the title for this article. For those who do not understand or want to understand the Law of Attraction, it is not only extreme positivism volunteerism or without knowing because it is much more than that. While he acts without conviction but simply positive thinking at first treated the first steps involved in this “law” there will come a moment that inner strength to drive or who does not know the “Secret” to deflate one or two or negative events that at first glance are counterproductive to the goal they had planned. Therein lies the difference in who acts on impulse only “rational” who works through his spirit energy transmitted. For whoever is located in the second position will continue to press forward like a raging bull in good times and bad. Lawyer is often quoted as being for or against this. Because only those who understood this matter, knows that Negative events that cross at their destination are not hindering his path stones, but stones that allow them to “elevate” your address higher. These stones actually help you strengthen your spirit, and that it grows with each solving a problem that I brought before you.

Some will say, but is not that you attract negative situations, only if you have negative thoughts?. Yes that’s true, but it is also true and I say it, that when one insists on meeting its target at all costs, no matter how many difficulties before us, you end up getting that goal, perhaps more quickly than if everything had gone smoothly entry. I mean, if you’re meeting all as it is to you plants will be happy about it, but you’ll be happier when you submit the complications (not the bad thoughts) because they know you are indicating that you are closer of your target. It’s like a sign that God is giving you that not only are you in the right way, but you’re coming. It seems contradictory at first, but as I said in other items is what allows you to exercise perseverance (I call it stubborn perseverance.) And that perseverance coupled with the strength of will are the major determinants to make the Law of Attraction fully operational.

This means that no matter what these “stones” planted you ahead of your goal, you must continue without stopping to do, because in life there are no losers, there are only people who do not dare to win, which is not same. In life there are no losses, there are only partial arrests or breaks your goal. The time will depend solely and only stop you. If you fall, not the end, contrary to lift you need to first be on the floor. After it all takes you up, while you Lay it in your mind. So if you want to win, if you want to get the victory begins to achieve your goal right now, do not leave for tomorrow what you can start today. Now that you know it all depends on you, get up with all your strength and starts the beginning of your next victory, because this is getting closer.

As well as, possibly, they would understand the urgent and respectful necessity of, pacifically, continuing climbing in the summit of the equitable distribution that glorifies the equality that is born from the world-wide productivity and its resources, to the benefit of the own social equality.
