It’s been a few years since someone’s been rude enough about / to Juno to make me cry. Today it was a 4 year old! So I’m here to ask you to be mindful of how you act and speak in front of your kids because they are our own reflections!! Lyla’s mum (link over on Facebook) worded it perfectly recently - us SN parents L💓VE questions! We actually encourage you and your kids to come up and ask them! 🧠➡️🤲🏼 Knowledge manifests compassion!! I gave Juno a giant hug and smooch as we left. I kept my fucking little arsehole thoughts to myself though. Just like his caregivers should try doing with their derogatory ones!! ~Mia. . . #newlife #adventure #australia #adelaide #southaustralianbeaches #beaches #nature #camping #love #beautiful #specialneeds #parenting #family #3kids #anaphylaxis #foodallergies #stayathomedad #workingmum #carer #disability #blind #visuallyimpaired #autism #complexcare #wheelchair #havewheelswilltravel #simplelife #kindnesscostsnothing #spreadthatshiteverywhere 🌈
In recent years, the number one question I receive is from aspiring models. Young men and women looking to break into the industry. Well, you'll be happy to know that while working with @modlbehavior.me I created a simple modeling 101 blog post. ・・・ Go to: 🌐 www.modlbehavior.me/blog/without-agency . . . #MODLbae #MODLguest #ModelMonday #amputeemodel #disability #disabled #model #inspire #model101 #inclusion #tryharder #dream #justdoit #wheelchair #able

Waiting for the game to start tonight, thinking back to the first time I was back at a pro game since being paralyzed... which was a surprise trip to St. Louis about a month ago for my birthday!! Looking forward to many more trips to the ballpark! ⚾️#stlcards

Friends! I would so 💗 to hear your thoughts and opinions. 👇👇🏼👇🏽👇🏻👇🏾👇🏿 If we take a sec to scan our surroundings, it likely doesn’t take long for your 👀 intersect with some type of wheel. 🚴‍♀️ Wheels are all around us, as they are a super handy invention (some might argue - the most important invention of all time) and we rely on them in major ways. 🚜 And given that we (both individually and societally) are so accustomed to utilizing them to take us to the places we want or need to go (car, bike, motorcycle, bus, etc), or to get stuff done that we couldn’t otherwise get done, I’ve just never understood why the wheelchair seems like some sort of deviation from the norm. ♿️ And why does the accessible nature of the wheel, as it relates to going places, feel confined (mostly) to roadways? 🤔 Why are even our sidewalks and public spaces inaccessible to people needing to use wheelchairs to get places? Why are our homes, business, and all the places in between set up for say, my @onepeloton indoor spin cycle, but not the legit mobility and lifestyle needs of so many people? The future is accessible, you guys, so please tell me what that looks like for you, whether you are in a wheelchair, 💗 someone who is, or is neither of those things but cares about equity, diversity, accessibility. Thanks! P.S. I’m working on a passion project and need / want / SO appreciate this input. 💜

Sometimes I hate finding things on the internet that I can relate to. Society judges you by how much you contribute to society. If you’re disabled and have a limited ability to contribute you’re worth less than the average person. Productivity should not be how we measure a person’s intrinsic value. People around us can shape our lives and have a positive impact on society without having a job. #spoonie #chronicpain #chronicillness #invisableillness #disability
RECOMMENDED READ. LINK TO FULL ARTICLE IN BIO. For those who were unaware of her pioneering work in the socialist movement. Helen Keller is one of the most widely recognized figures in US history that people actually know very little about. That she was a serious political thinker who made important contributions in the fields of socialist theory and practice, or that she was a pioneer in pointing the way toward a Marxist understanding of disability oppression and liberation—this reality has been overlooked and censored. The mythological Helen Keller that we are familiar with has aptly been described as a sort of “plaster saint;” a hollow, empty vessel who is little more than an apolitical symbol for perseverance and personal triumph. This is the story that most of us are familiar with: A young Helen Keller contracted an illness that left her blind and deaf; she immediately reverted to the state of a wild animal, as depicted in the popular movie The Miracle Worker; she remained in this state virtually unchanged until she was rescued by her teacher Anne Sullivan, who “miraculously” introduced her to the world of language. Then time passed, and Helen Keller died eighty years later: End of story.

“Change starts with the Youth” I had the pleasure to speak at my daughters school for Career Day. In addition to what I do, I made sure to share the impact that I try to make on improving the community in hopes that they will consider doing the same as they grow. It all starts with the words, I can! (I shared that I been doing the #drakechallenge since before Drake was known)! Lol!

"[Seven-year-old Anaya Ellick, who was born with no hands and does not use prostheses, recently won a national penmanship contest. _____ Holding the pencil between her wrists, the first-grader at Greenbrier Christian Academy in Chesapeake, Va., formed neat, careful letters, earning her the Nicholas Maxim Special Award for Excellence in Manuscript Penmanship. The award is one of several that the educational company Zaner-Bloser gives out every year. _____ To enter the contest for the Nicholas Maxim Award, "a student must have a cognitive delay, or an intellectual, physical or developmental disability," Zaner-Bloser said in a statement, adding that a team of occupational therapists judges the entries. _____ Contest director Kathleen Wright said the judges were "just stunned" by the quality of Anaya's printing. "Her writing sample was comparable to someone who had hands."Though Anaya's arms end in tapered wrists instead of hands, she is developmentally normal in every other respect, according to a profile by The Virginian-Pilot. _____ "When she wanted to draw, she learned how to balance a crayon or marker between her arms," the Pilot wrote. "By the time she was 5, she stopped using prosthetics." Her mother, Bianca Middleton, said they were "slowing her down more than helping."]" - NPR _____ #anayaellick #nicholasmaximaward #penmanship #disabled #disability #youcanachieveanything #igers #ig #insta

[Caption reads:] I'm so tired today, but I'm making so much progress with my physiotherapy!!! My shoulder doesn't come out of the socket when I relax my arm, and my knee barely hyperextends when I'm walking!! It's so motivating, and I honestly really want to get going to the gym lol I hope you enjoy EDS awareness month and you have a great day full of spoons!! 🥄🥄 [Caption ends] {Image Description: A photo of a red zebra Stripe background with white text. The text reads; EDS random fact #19 : We suffer from chronic fatigue. Our connective tissue laxity creates blood pooling which creates orthostatic intolerance which triggers, among other stuff, chronic fatigue. Feeling exhausted all the time zkcyy ddds zzzzzzzzz}

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Fact 21 Subtype: Myopathic EDS (mEDS) 💙 • mEDS is a rare form of EDS that has been found in only 9 patients from 5 different families. mEDS is known to cause muscle weakness in infancy that tends to improve with age. The 3 major criteria for mEDS are 1. Congenital muscle hypotonia and/or muscle atrophy, 2. Proximal joint contractures, and 3. Hypermobility of distal joints (The Ehlers-Danlos Society). • Genetics: "mEDS is caused by heterozygous or biallelic mutations in COL12A1, and the clinical phenotype highly overlaps with collagen type VI-related myopathies. It is currently unknown whether other, yet to be discovered genes, are associated with this phenotype. In case no COL12A1 mutations are identified alternative diagnoses, especially collagen VI-related Ullrich Congenital Muscular Dystrophy and Bethlem Myopathy, should be considered. mEDS is inherited in either the autosomal dominant or the autosomal recessive pattern" (The Ehlers-Danlos Society). • Are you, or anyone you know, one of the few people diagnosed with mEDS? If so, let us know in the comment section below! ⬇️

Our amazing friends Paper Clouds Apparel (@papercloudsapparel ) were established to showcase the creative minds and artistic abilities of individuals with special needs while raising funds to provide financial support for special needs schools and organizations! • Every two weeks they partner up with a different special needs cause, take artwork from their members with special needs and then bring their art to life on t-shirts, hats, and bags! They even feature the special needs organizations products on their website, and 50% of the net proceeds go directly back to that special needs cause they are promoting! • For too long society has treated individuals with special needs like second-class citizens and Paper Clouds Apparel is looking to change that! The founder, Robert Thornton (@thorny20 ) says, "When these artists with special needs see their artwork on products, it gives them a self-esteem boost that lasts the rest of their life, all while helping raise money for special programs." • Recent studies show that 80-90% of all adults with special needs are unemployed so Paper Clouds Apparel also provides employment opportunities for individuals with special needs to package all of their friendly clothing! • We should never limit others potential because anyone is capable of accomplishing whatever their heart desires! Instead of treating individuals with disabilities as secondary people, let's show them respect and encourage them to keep on pushing and achieving great things! ❤️#ImpactBillions  @papercloudsapparel @thorny20

At our last gathering we did a ritual where we created a paper chain. Everyone contributed one link, and as they added their link, someone else from the group named a gift they saw in that person. After it was complete we reflected on each of us as linked together as members of the body of Christ. We talked about how we need each one, and what would happen if we removed the link of any one of us: it would fall apart. We are colorfully linked and all needed in community, with every #ability #disability #diagnosis and #gift we bring. . . . . . . . . . . #church #churchplant #pasadena #altadena #disabilities #inclusion #belonging #churchinla #losangeles #jesus #downsyndrome #autism #intellectualdisability

"When you’re starting to put together your pre-plan for the NDIS, it’s best to begin where you feel most comfortable – without thinking too much about the rules. It’s far easier to edit what you have later, than to get bogged down in all the details at the beginning. You can use the pre-plan template inside First2Care to begin building a picture of your life right now, writing down the support you have, what’s working and what isn’t. The First2Care template has prompts to help you get started. Then you can start thinking about your goals for your life. Once you’ve filled in a rough draft of your pre-plan, I’d recommend learning what you can about how the NDIA will assess your plan. This will help you understand if the support your asking for will meet their criteria, and help you provide evidence that it does – if you need to. The NDIA assesses your criteria against the Rules from Sections 33 and 34 of the NDIS Act." https://www.first2care.com.au/blog/ndis-act-reasonable-necessary #ndis #ndisready #ndisprovider #disability #australia #myndis #ndisapproved #ndissupport #ndischanginglives #disability #disabilities #disabilityaustralia #disabilitypride #disabilityawareness #disabilitysupport #disabledandproud #allabilities #choiceandcontrol #reasonableandnecessary #peoplewithdisability #nothingforuswithoutus #accessibility #inclusion

My Day Counts has proudly served the people of Orange County since 1951 as a place where people with disabilities come to work. Today we are in the process of undergoing a major organizational transformation by enhancing our programs and the layout and design of our facility.
