He is fantastic! www.treeofhope.or... Thomas is 18 months old from Albrighton. He was born 10 weeks early in September 2011. When he was 20 days old we were told the devastating news our little boy had suffered bilateral periventricular leukomalacia (PVL), a type of brain damage from a hypoxic event during labour or after birth, which would most likely result in cerebral palsy.
I liked this post because this connects to other classes I am taking, as well as EDCP462. Technology has made it possible for people with intellectual, mental, physical, hard of hearing, every category of disability able to accomplish things that may have not been possible before; or at least very difficult before technology. Assistive technology can really help in the lives of students with disabilities achieve so much more than ever expect.
When we spoke about technology for disabled individuals we mentioned VRS interpreters. I had no idea what/how this worked out. This picture shows the basics of how a VRS interpreter works for someone who may be deaf or hard of hearing. They sign to the interpreter, who talks to the person on the other end. Which then they talk to the interpreter and the interpreter signs back to the individual with a hearing impairment. So awesome that this is available! And texting helps even more now!
