A coach who premotes inclusion

      I am soo lucky that  I have a coach  who truly  believes  that anyone can    play and support there school.    This year  golf had a  a lot of  new comers so I thought I was  history.  GO is  not cutting  anyone but for finical  reasons  he is not going to  take everyone out for  matches  or    practice on the course. Go   has   a  good heart he   knows  about   my changes  but is  willing to do all he    can to  help  me  learn the game that he loves.       A lot of   coaches   have    cut me but  not GO.  I am thinking of writing a poem to him explain how    he  has helped be  belong  but   that will have to  come  latter.

A great day

 Hi guys you are probably wondering    how today went and I have one  word for you GREAT. My mom and Dad talked to  my special education  teacher( who  assist  me in mainstream  classes)   and   she  is going to switch me  into algebra two  but until then I get  two periods with her which meant that I  got  90 percent of  my homework done today.     I also  talked to my science teacher who told me that I took  tolerate out of  context  he felt really bad  about what happen so after lunch he gave me some cookies and was almost in tears. I know that he likes me and I think I will   give him the befitting of the  drought.  I   am  hopeing that my mom will  contact  ms A   for touting in math and spainsh it would be great to see her again   for help.

I feel betrayed

    Hi guys  I  would love to have typed that  my turning over a new  leaf  in  school this  year is going great  but  it is not

 Let me start off  by saying Monday through  Thursday    started off  great.  I was playing golf  and  writing two  essays   ( that is 11 grade  for you)   seems  good  right wrong.

 There  is  a new kid at school that is  my grade. He is  in my chemistry class  and  I thought  he make a great friend . Well I learned that he  is popular and   thus      the kids  proubly told  him to forget about me.


 Well I diced to tell him about my social stadus in  a  blunt  way  yesterday and he  said he still  wanted to be my friend. All went well  until the end of science  class. As I was packing up   I heard  my teacher say  "They  tolerate her   and help  her   but she is a great kid."      He only said this  because   I was listening  in  on stuff they were saying    behind my back,

 I  can't  believe what happened   might I remind you that this is the same teacher that I had  last year   who was nice  and helped me  out last year. He  diced to   tell the new kid (who he knew I was  trying to make  friends  with) to  Tolerate me  instead of  Aceapt  me,  He  made  a big stink  earlier  that he was going to treat me  like any other  student  but then to  say   others tolerates me   come  on  he really     wait the  post dosen't  end there  when I asked him  what he meant   he  his  kid felt  unconformable  to  me  because  he  never met a  girl like me  before,  what      When I confronted him     he said  the teacher  brought me  up  and the  teacher won't tell me the whole stroy .My mom emailed  him when I literary came home in tears 

 Ms  A is not back this year  and the Autism  class is not at my school anymore   thus I  have no where   to  go and no one to hang out with. Please keep  my family in  mind  over the weekend  because  my ocd is acting  up  from  my math  class.  I have not had a day as bad  as that one  since night  grade  just before   i got OCD

Az gowns and moons a lot but steps on the cold floor and realizing a new chapter is about to begin
Az will get dressed in some jeans a cute blue shirt and say

New nick names

If you read Baby's birthday post you would know that her new nick name around here is Princess. How did I come up with that you asked let me tell you why,


On her birthday I woke up to her doing a scavenger hunt that Mid-sis put together the night before and on her head was a crown this remind me of her second birthday picture where she is wearing a crown sp her nick name is princess




Now for mid sis her name is going to be book gal. Mid sis love to read in fact she takes books everywhere she goes. It is not uncommen for her to eat a meal with out her so her nick name is book gal.


Az is going to stay Az no surprises there

the man I am going to change to laid back athlete. Man has it easy he is 24 and has no job. He lives with his mom and trains for baseball ( he wants to be come pro) but surfs and hangs out with friends so his new nick name is laid back athlete

Amazing golf short

On moday was the last day of Special Olympics golf. I think it is safe to say that I have improved a lot. we were doing some chipping and the target was a bag which held all the practice balls. I hit a golf ball inside the bag How cool is that.

I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM

On Monday I finished Bay cities driving school and was so exacted because I had a blue paper that shows I completed all my days and ready to get a permit. I ran out to the car and got embarrassed by one of Baby's friends who I did not know was in the car. We drooped her off and headed home. On the way home I said that I was sorry to baby to which she said . "It's okay I just tell them You have a problem.'"

I said I don't have a problem she then said the prefix dis means taken away. It dose but I do not have a problem. I tried telling baby that problem has the connotation of needing to be fixed.

Why dose this matter I will tell you all why. My disabilities make me AZ the kid that so many people care about. I am a writer I am a good student and yeah I have disabilities big deal. I wouldn't want to be normal I'd be different person with a completely different personalty.


The world see people with disabilities as a problems. here is why. People use the word retard with out caring. (Go see Jeff blog for more info on this in the media) People abort kids with down syndrome even though they have a lot to give the world . That is why I started blogging and will continue to do so to show people that I have more abilities than disabilities

Ability tuesday :Augest 2008

 
  It  is that time  again time for ABILITY Tuesdays/  Man  do I have   something great  to   share with you guys  Before I  start    I  want to  give a shout out to   MA for nice artwork   you are a great  artist. 


My ability for this month is my great ideas. I have a lot of them. Here are some of my ideas. I could write post on each one but I am LAZY.
 


1 You know how I have NLD well not a lot of people know about it that much so these next three ides promote NlD awayness and give kids a buddy
    a) You all know of the Buddy Walk why not do something similar to promote NLD awareness. A mile long walk with games, advocates as well as food.
    b) Terrific Teens: this directly relates to my last for Ability Tuesday . Why not start a program that pares people form the time enter middle school( sixth to seventh grade) till they graduate from high school with a young adult (25-30)who helps them transition into adulthood. This would be a great thing where kids could spend monthly meetings with their mentor and friend with others like themselves. the kids and mentors could work together to earn something like a friendship bracelet with rainbow colors. This can lead kids with NLD to go to collage
.
 

    c) a video that talks about NLD from specialist and school aged kids. This would help get out the message of what NLD is about.
 

2 A Magazine for all parents with kids with disabilities in the local towns and school. This would have stories as well as where to go for therapy from area to area for parents and people with special needs.

I might Just Try again


Remember how I bloged here how I can't ride a two Wheller. Well, I was looking online around mid night when I came across Lose Your training wheels. This is a program that uses adaptive bikes in hope to teach kids with special needs how to ride a regular bike. This has to be the coolest idea that anyone has come up with( well except the whole Video game thing LOL). The best part is they host one here in Northern CA just past San Francisco. I missed it for this year but I just might be able to convince my parents to look into it or if I am luckier maybe my pals in HMB will bring it there which will save me the gas and time . I found a You tube video of it here it is.
