Last night this girl performed with her high school choir and it was amazing! Watching her on stage singing and having fun, seeing her with her friends off stage, and our own after show personal review of highlights, fills my heart with joy. With all the challenges facing her, this girl still shines. I am honored to be her mom and I cherish every moment with her. She’s growing too fast and I can’t seem to keep up sometimes, but I am enjoying the ride.

This week we'd like to give a big THANK YOU to the volunteers that share our vision for independence. Who generously gift their time and energy.

The role each and every one of you play at VisAbility, and the work you do for people living with a disability, is deeply meaningful. Your work is seen, it is highly appreciated and it makes a difference.

You have helped deliver life-changing services. And helped transform lives.

Over the last few years, we've had HUNDREDS of volunteers involved with Autism Swim - be it helping us at events, business advisory, students, parents and friends. The organisation started with one person and a mission, and now we're operating in five countries, and changing a huge number of lives. We have only been able to do it because of you. Time is the most valuable asset we all have, and choosing to give some of yours is one of the greatest gifts you can give. Thank you. Happy National Volunteers Week.

So many people have tagged me in this post and each time my eyes get misty lol! This girl is EXTRAORDINARY!! I’m just so proud to see this! When I was her age I didn’t have these examples but I had a SOLID support system and they didn’t place any limitations. I didn’t have formal teaching on how to write. My doctors weren’t sure if I could but when the task was presented IT JUST HAPPENED. And I got better and better! Regardless of what people think I’ve always had everything I needed to get what I wanted. Being born without hands wasn’t a “disability”it just made me more innovative. I’m so glad this young princess is setting an example for all of us about excuses: AIN’T NONE!

There are moments in motherhood where I sometimes wish I was a working mom. I sometimes feel like I don’t have much purpose or what I do doesn’t really count because I stay at home. With all the school battles and kid meltdowns and teenage drama, I can feel less than valuable as I muddle through each moment. And then there’s this...among many more, that I get to walk alongside my kids. I get to be there for the moments in their lives that matter to them. Today I am at my little one’s first walk a thon for school. She was so cute holding hands with her little friends and walking together, and I got to see it. I know what I do matters and I know that being there for every moment I can be, matters. Raising these kids, fighting for their needs, and holding them through their breaking point matters. I may not get a paycheck but these kids are worth far more than that and I AM valuable and I have a greater purpose.

Meet Ryder! #littlestwarriorwednesday 
_
Ryder has Williams Syndrome and his mom @_ashleymontano shared with us a little of Ryder’s story:
_
“The first handful of doctors we had seen had all told us the same news, "Ryder was going to die.” Little did we know our lives were forever about to change, Thank God. In walked an older gentleman that smelled just like my grandpa used to, he started examining Ryder, he looked over and told us, “he has Williams Syndrome". He was older and couldn't figure out how to get google on his computer. I literally couldn't wait to get to the car so I could figure out what this syndrome was!”

Clarity guides Action!

On Saturday, 26th May 2018 , i and @aainitiative will mark another milestone in the advocacy for persons with disabilities and in campaigning for an all-inclusive society. 
Initially,  it was a bit unclear as to what I wanted to achieve when the #AllLivesmatterNGR idea popped up.

Today, i see the end from the beginning which is what most leaders and achievers advise. 
For sponsorship, partnerships or enquiries towards the #AllLivesmatterNGR Rendezvous,  DM @aainitiative or comment below.

#AccessibilityPSA - this car is parked in a disabled spot. It has a disability placard hanging from the mirror. Can you spot the #accessibility issue?

If you guessed that it's that they're parked half in the access area, you'd be correct! 
Even if you have a disability tag/placard, you should not ever (nor can you legally) block the access area. Not only does this potentially keep anyone in the disabled space on the other side of the access area from being able to transition in/out of their vehicle, it also blocks access to the building.

Repeat after me, abled and disabled friends alike: "I solemnly swear not to block access areas." xoxo,
your friendly neighborhood disabled babe

*Sneak peek alert* 
Who can guess what kind of fun shenanigans we have in store for tomorrow's picnic??
*Sneak peek alert* Who can guess what kind of fun shenanigans we have in store for tomorrow's picnic??
• THE UNKNOWN •⠀
.⠀
You don’t know where you’re going to end up but you do know where you are right now.
✨
Stepping into the unknown can be one of the scariest and most freeing experience of your life.
✨
The thing that let's most people down in stepping is trying to control the experience too much by thinking you know everything already.⠀
✨⠀
The whole idea of stepping into the unknown is to discover something new. Maybe that's because the way you've been doing things hasn't been working or maybe you're looking for answers. Either way, if you have certainty that you know all there is to know about your condition or any particular topic, you close the door on finding out new information. ✨
There isn't any space to find something new if you're already full.⠀
✨⠀
For years I thought there was no way to get out of the chronic pain. I didn't like taking painkillers, so I didn't, but all the other things I tried didn't help. When I started with my movement coach, one of the many things he told me was to observe the sensations, stop labelling the feeling as good or bad and just feel it, see if anything else shows up.⠀
✨⠀
This process taught me how to let go of what I thought I knew about my body, it taught me to allow the unknown to show up in which ever way it wanted to without trying to control the experience based on my past.⠀
✨⠀
It's possible that all you that you really want, is sitting behind all that you think you know and to discover it, all you have to do is let go.⠀

📣Not a paid post- I just felt the need to share this for anyone who’s thinking about trying out a TENS Unit. I found this cheap & easy unit at CVS after my new primary recommend that I give it a try. She was baffled that I didn’t want Tramadol or to try another preventative for fibro pain, and said that this was the only other thing she could think of. And for once, the ‘Idk’ option worked! I’ve been switching between hip, back, shoulder, and knee positions for two days, and I’ve spent A LOT of time on this thing, but my deep muscle pain is definitely getting better! My ankles feel less like they’re breaking when I walk, and the raw/fragile feeling in my shoulders/neck is starting to strengthen. It’s not a miracle cure or a quick fix, but it is absolutely helping. When I go back next week, I’ll be asking about getting a higher grade unit through insurance. I was on the fence about buying one for a while, mostly because of the cost, also because of my nerve pain, but I’m so glad I gave this a chance. ⚡️🏆

For those of you who missed it. Here’s the moment. I was overwhelmed by the applause so much. Even for some one as experienced As I when it comes to talking to crowds. No member of the Monash community has ever seen me walk. This may well have been the final chance, I’ll ever have to walk as my rheumatoid arthritis continues to deteriorate my body. I battled through so much pain across that stage as I am on antibiotics for bronchitis. I went against doctors advice to do this. But boy did it surprise everyone. #cp #disabilityawareness #disabilityrights #disabilityadvocate #disability #cerebralpalsy #wheelchair #monashuniversity #bachelorsdegree #criminology #criminaljusticemajor #sociology  For those of you asking, I’m doing my #masterofsocialwork currently and who knows there maybe plans to undertake a doctorate degree later, but for now it’s one degree at a time. ......

But boy did it surprise everyone. #cp  #disabilityawareness  #disabilityrights  #disabilityadvocate  #disability  #cerebralpalsy  #wheelchair  #monashuniversity  #bachelorsdegree  #criminology  #criminaljusticemajor  #sociology  For those of you asking, I’m doing my #masterofsocialwork  currently and who knows there maybe plans to undertake a doctorate degree later, but for now it’s one degree at a time. ...... @embracedisability @icaniwillaustralia @emmahusarmp @drtarimack @fortheloveofsmiley @dr.rachhale @drfleurcattrall

Day 21: “What has EDS taken from you?” This list could be a mile long unfortunately. Chronic illness, such as EDS, which I suffer from, affects every aspect of your life. It has taken away control of my body and how it reacts in most situations, my reliability, my friendships, my career as a hair stylist, my independence and more. I rely on my husband, family and friends to help me with getting to appointments, and even caring for the house. Tasks like cooking that I used to love, are now a huge chore most days. We have our neighbour come over every few weeks to help clean our house (that’s what she does for work), and we’ve had to get a church member to help cut our grass once a week. I’m so thankful for their support, but it’s a constant struggle dealing with the guilt of being in my 20’s and unable to keep up with these things. I’m so thankful for therapy, and my wonderful psychologist helping me talk through these things. While EDS has taken a lot for me, I don’t want it to take ME too! #edsawareness #edschallenge #eds #edsawarenessmonth #ehlersdanlossyndrome #pots #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #mcad #mcas #disabilityawareness #goodbadandugly #spoonielife #zebrastrong #disabilityadvocate  #spoonie

Another year, another fantastic Round Table Conference!

Our team members (pictured) Kary, David and Dinesh flew to Sydney to attend the Annual #RoundTableConference for information access for people with a print disability. After months of hard work, (especially from our very own Conference Coordinator, Dinesh) the three-day event went off without a hitch. #tbt #VisAbility #VisAbilityAU #VisAbilityWA #Rydges @rydgeshotels

#ootd while I went and spoke with some people in my local community who know about more disability organizations near us. I swear it’s like pulling teeth to get people to respond to me, so I can get involved! I’m persistent though, so I know something will give. Hopefully the directions they pointed me will lead to something! #disabilityrights #disabilityawareness #disabilityrightsarehumanrights #advocate #advocacy #inclusion #disabilityinclusion #disabilityadvocate #mswheelchairpennsylvania2018 #pathtonationals #journeytomswheelchairamerica

Oh the anaphylaxis 😣 my throat has been closing up so often that it feels bruised, and my abdomen is on fire from coughing, which is making the swelling from my IBS flare even more painful. Aren’t clashing chronic conditions the best? 🙄 All the up and down from taking care of Mom is finally catching up to me, and I’ve spent almost all day sleeping or medicating in this exact spot. Pepper is starting to get stir crazy and has been needing extra attention this afternoon. She keeps throwing a toy for herself, chasing it, and making sure we watch to tell her how cute she is 🤹🏻‍♀️ When she’s tired, she hops right back up with me. My hair’s a disaster, but isn’t she cute? 🦁🍬

Hey hey hey it’s Day 21 of Williams Syndrome awareness month! Today I want to talk about LEARNING. Something that’s very difficult for most individuals with WS.💙❤️💚
Most people with Williams syndrome will have mild to severe learning differences and cognitive challenges. Young children with Williams Syndrome often experience developmental delays. Milestones such as walking, talking, and toilet training are often achieved somewhat later than is considered normal. Distractibility is a common problem in mid-childhood, which can improve as the children get older.
Older children and adults with Williams syndrome often demonstrate intellectual "strengths and weaknesses." There are some intellectual areas (such as speech, long term memory, and social skills) in which performance is quite strong, while other intellectual areas (such as fine motor and spatial relations) show significant weakness.
Ryder has severe delays, his open heart surgery in 2014 really set him back. He just learned how to re-walk last April, and he really only does it around the house, he gets tried very easily. We are inching towards getting him a communication device since he’s mastered a yes and no switch question. Ryder is also delayed in speech, he does have some vocalizations and some words. But he mostly cries or whines when he needs something or will pull you to what his preferred choice is. I hope one day we can potty train Ryder, this is something I have faith will happen on his own time. I’m happy with whatever he’s doing so long as he’s happy. 😊

CAN I HELP YOU?🤝
One of the most difficult while simultaneously helpful things about being disabled is the amount of people who reach out to help you. It’s both endearing yet annoying. For quite a long time some able bodied people have viewed persons with disabilities to be helpless. While some of us, especially with disabilities know this isn’t true. I can drive my own car, take care of my dog, clean the house, go out alone (with Atlas), open doors, get up curbs, and basically live my life with some help from Atlas and Jaina. However, people in public often don’t know this or even understand this. They just see me in a wheelchair with a service dog, and often run to my aid unwarranted. The thing is.. I don’t mind their generosity. That’s not what it’s about. Its about the assumptions. When someone sees me go to open a door, they don’t even let me TRY before they run over and just open the door for me. They assume I can’t open it. When I reach for something it’s just ASSUMED I can’t get it. So it’s handed to me. When I go to a store I’m asked if I need help by every employee that works there... twice. When only one employee asks an able bodied person once. This is being treated differently. It’s not mean or malicious however it makes a statement saying, “I don’t think they can do it.” So what’s the solution? I think everyone’s stance on this varies. In my opinion I’d rather someone ASK. Ask me if I need the door opened or ask me if you can reach something for me. Consequently, most people with disabilities will ask someone for help if they need it. If I need help I have no problem asking. I just don’t appreciate unwarranted help. Personally, I enjoy a challenge. I enjoy trying to navigate the life I’ve been given. Because if I don’t try for myself and have to problem solve, when will I ever learn? How could I possibly keep working towards independence if everyone does everything for me?

Can’t get over this gorgeous drawing by fellow sooonie, Lauren Palmateer (@rennyrenders ) 💕 if only my hands allowed me to do detail work like this 👌🏻🤩 Art therapy is such a wonderful way to heal and process pain, and I’m always amazed by the hidden talents we possess that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. I never would have started painting if I were healthy enough to be working or reading. I never would have taken the time to garden or take photos or learn to make soap and candles. Any time I’ve lost the ability to do something I love, I’ve been able to find something else to take its place. But I wouldn’t have found those new passions if not for a perpetually open mind and the endless potential of art as self expression 🍋🌿🎨 (Not that I don’t miss my past loves every day 🎼🎹💃🏼🏐🏃‍♀️👩🏻‍🔬👩🏻‍🏫📑👩🏻‍🍳)
