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.

Proving that it at the beginning had differences in the blood of diverse individuals with the discovery of the blood groups of century XX, it was possible to explain then why some people died after blood transfusions and others not. The sanguine types are determined by the presence, in the surface of the hemcias, of antigens that can be of nature varied biochemist, being able to be composites for carboidratos, lipdeos, proteins or a mixture of these composites.

The laboratorial determination of the sanguineous groups ABO and Rh was originally carried through becoming to react the hemcias of the patient with soros produced Anti-A, Anti-B and Anti-D in laboratory, in clean blades of microscopy. However, in Brazil, it was determined for the legislation that the tests of aglutinao are not made in blades, but yes for more necessary methods, as the methods in excavated microplates and/or pipes of assay, or the method of the gel-centrifugalization, more recent. Read additional details here: David Delrahim, Los Angeles CA. The accomplishment of the Direct evidence and the Test is praised reversa in the case of System ABO and Test of Coombs in the case of the Rh System, if the same to present negative, thus making possible sorologicamente to distinguish weak the RhD antigen from some present partial RhD antigens in the sample. We find in System ABO the blood group hh, also call of blood group of Bombay (Fentipo of Bombay), a blood group rare. The individuals hh do not express antigen H, that is found in the blood group. As result does not obtain to produce wants the antigen, it wants the B, in its red, being, therefore known globules as ‘ ‘ False O’ ‘. Natural antibodies in the system do not exist Rh, being the antibodies gifts only in the individuals sensetized for previous inoculation. The inoculation can occur for episodes of incompatible transfusion or, in the woman, due to introduction, in the maternal blood of negative the Rh mother, of hemcias proceeding from a pregnancy or abortion of Positive Rh son taking the child to have Eritroblastose or the Hemoltica illness Just-been born Fetal. The transfusions are carried through to increase the capacity of the blood to carry oxygen, to restore the volume sanguine of the organism, to improve the immunity or to correct riots of the coagulation. Of the combination between System ABO and of the Rh Factor, we can find the calls universal givers (the negative) and universal receivers (positive AB).

United States Terrorism

He learned to be more supportive friends, family and faith helped him to overcome the tragedy, but also the fact to be useful for other people that passed through the same experience than him. I tried to help other victims of terrorism, as the the 11-M in Madrid. Me I went to Santa Eugenia and I was talking with them, conveyed them to the mercy of God is stronger than any evil in the world and told them to work intensely, helps to overcome the problem, he has told. According to him, the experience taught him also to be more supportive, so it was working as a volunteer for the legal advice of Caritas. Learn more on the subject from Nieman Lab. Without rancor toward terrorists San Pio has not never had any feeling of resentment towards those who killed his daughter because, for him, what hate is terrorism itself, not to the terrorists, as they are pieces in the hands of terrorism.

The lawyer, that does not justify any act of this kind nor the 11-S, has opined that terrorism takes advantage of social injustice that is in the world and feeds people that lend themselves to be, for example, inmolados instead of being saved. Despite this, he rejoiced the disappearance of Bin Laden on May 1 of this year: I was not happy for his death, but for the disappearance of at least a part of the power of Al-Qaida. This fact, however, not comforted him: the death of my daughter, my grandson budding and my son-in-law had already occurred, could not change the situation, so you not consoled me that this man would die and neither would have done if it had gone to jail. Jose Luis De San Pio has a pin with the flags of United States and Spain which starts every day after 11-S, and another also an American flag in his Office next to the Aragon, his homeland. EE UU legislation is very different from ours. This man (Bin Laden) was a terrorist, there is no U.S. law that prevents that you were captured by force and killed.

Under the perspective of United States, this is not illegitimate, he added. St. Pio and his family you will recall his daughter through a private mass which will be held in Madrid. I think it good that anniversaries are remember what It passed, but not so much anecdotes or the details of the day, but the fundamental: that terrorism still exists, said, and added that they were promised many things to combat this problem and few have been made. Source of the news: the father of the victim only Spanish in the 11-S: “still be able to go to the ground zero”
