Get to know who I am

Hello. I am Barry Smith and I am 38 years old, from Irvine in Ayrshire which is up in Scotland. All of my life people being look at me liked I am so different this is down to four things, the first thing is I have a physical disability which is Cerebral Palsy and I am in a Power Chair to, down to not having good speech I use a Lighterwriter. what I want people to understand my mind work. My hands jump around so I am type this up with my big toe. I went to college for many years and got my NC in Computing. my personal feel about college for disability people, they don't understand what we need they read up. We should start something.

    Hello Barry and welcome
    It is great to meet you. Thanks for sharing a little of your life.
    You are the second person I have met who types with their toe, I had a good friend with mobius syndrome. I have enough trouble using two fingers :)
    please let me know if I can  help with anything
