I have decided to change a few things with 1 Voice and 1 Voice jr, I been busy creating picture to take my mind off being stressy and music on in the back ground. I find doing the pictures and and listening to music helps me to relax and help with my emotions which I find to get out at times.May 10
I haven't been on here the last few weeks cus being a bit stressy.
I got date for my benefit assessment, but it was on a day my parents was going on holiday which it was 18th April, day after Easter bank holiday. We rang up twice to cancel that date cus my parents going awa, they just said we are busy , you need to ring back next week, and when we did, we got the same again. So my parents decided and told them that they are doing it, they will rearrange their start of holiday till the next day. Day before Good Friday, i got a phone call to say the assessment has been cancelled cus they not got my paper work.
Last week I had a letter to say, since there a period of time gone pass you need to fill out the form. it was the same form as i got last year. Luckly we copy all my docs for the future in case things happen like this. it got posted as soon as possible.. Yesterday I got a new date for the assessment. 31st May.May 10
I decided to have a theme on my page on facebook this week and this is why
Why did you choose to do alternative communication week.
Not everyone is aware of all the different kind of communication people can use or have to use because of a disability or health issues.
I am visually impaired I've got a speech and language, coordination and balance problem and I'm going to get assessed for dyspraxia.
I got enough sight for me to read and write but to have larger print, some fonts I can't read, and it helps if different colour of paper or screen colours to help me. Speech helps me too but not found a package what is suitable because they can be to basic or they gear up for people with little sight or none at all.
People with other disabilities or health issues would benefit from the changing the size of the writing, paper/screen colour.
This is what 1 Voice about, to show many areas of disabilities and health issues are related to each when we communicate. If more of the organizations work together , it would bring down the cost for communication equipment/software.
Remember this, everyone has the right to have a say, in what method they use.April 18
