People with different forms of disabilities and health problems with talent.


No one knows everything whoever and whatever they are. Never think you're better than anyone else because no one is better than anyone at the end of the day.
From my own experience, many people with disabilities and health problems have been misunderstood and disbelieved one way or the other. Most people like me with disabilities and health problems have been class as thick because we are slow learners; I believed this was the reason why I suffered bullying in school. Never try to compare yourself with someone else because they may be slower than you, they will catch with themselves one day, never bully someone for that reason, in fact never bully at all for any reason!
 I like many left school with nothing wondering why I was ever and what my future was going to be. Life seemed completely negative when I left school in March 1986, then come April I achieved my first certificate, which was Grace 1 Riding for the Disabled. The rest my education and experience carry on from there.

Just because someone becomes talented doesn’t mean they become famous but some do. Most people disabilities and health problems are talented but one person isn’t better than the other whether they have disabilities and health problems or not, in fact, people without disabilities and health problems can be just as equal to those with http://www.vmi.edu/uploadedfiles/academics/academic_support/disabilities_services/famous%20people%20with%20learning%20disabilities%20-%20updated.pdf

What is Anxiety and Depression?

What is Anxiety and Depression? Anxiety and Depression can be a very easily misunderstood Mental Health problem. Depression is when you don’t really care much about anything or anybody but that’s not the case, which why it can be misunderstood. Anxiety is where you worry about everything and everybody but that’s not the case, which is why it can misunderstand. However’ if you have both, sadly life is hell which is mostly the case because mostly they link together. I think it’s very few and in-between people get one or other, to be honest no one knows for sure. Anxiety and Depression can link to other disabilities, health problems or and etc, it’s also possible to just get two of them or one or the other. Anxiety and Depression is a Mental Health problem, it’s feeling that can come on with or without a reason it can vary for different people. It can be so much understood because Depression is a feeling sadness and Anxiety is a feeling of anger, which people who don’t suffer from these Mental Health problems it’s easy for them to think everything about us is negative about the people who do, which is not true. The truth is that they are hidden and nine out of ten people who face Anxiety and Depression appears to be happier than those without so, therefore society can misunderstand them for always feeling happy with their lives. No one should be judged either way. However’ most people with Depression can feel we are to blame, failures, let down to ourselves, others, everything, everybody because so many people think more of the negative us than the positive to a point then encourages a person to think mostly negative of ourselves. We can feel alone but we are not alone. While is going us feel it’s never going end and its feel as if you feel life is not worth life. The worse things you can do is say everything negative to a person anyway, mainly those who face Anxiety and Depression as it is. Even if you feel someone has very low self – stream it’s your job to bring them back up again. As I said in the teaching session Thursday 27th April 2017, introducing Learning Disability Nursing, a theory can help some people like suggesting hobbies, interests, arts, crafts, careers, education or and etc, which is trying to give people something to look forward to and something positive to focus. However’ it does work for everyone. Don’t feel you have failed if something hasn’t worked for someone Anxiety and Depression is a very challenging to deal with, even a lot of people themselves feel just as fur straight ed as what you might do, bearing in mind we live with the condition we don’t enjoy what have to face. Someone who is suffering to a point it’s the opposite way where they have lost interest and everything, it can be very tricky where they may spend a lot a time off work or whatever else they were doing when they were okay. However’ some people have what you call a turnaround, I strangely did when I was losing my work with Mencap where there was less work coming in, then as time went on more problems they were facing then was starting to lose interest in the very little what was there. When I lost I had nothing happening from May 2011 to December 2011, I had spells I was climbing the walls begging to get out do something to spells I had no interest in anything. Due to the fact that lots of funding were been cut in different places there’s wasn’t a lot of help and support so the more I heard funding was cut and finding work so for was harder the more was losing interest and fail that things would improve, However’ somehow I managed to push myself to move forward again but not everyone can, some people more than others and others it just does happen at all. Yes, it is true that you can’t help people unless they help themselves, don’t get me wrong it’s not the case for everyone because there are many out who don’t help themselves but then they are many out there who try hard even too hard to a point, it’s harder for some than it is for others. We can feel a sense of guilt, blame or and even if we have no reason to feel that way. We can go through spells we feel down then better again but then we feel as though we never will. It’s easy for others to say things, don’t worry, don’t panic, it will pass; move on that part your life has gone now. As true as it maybe what they say, it is the frame we are at the time. We don’t see or feel it when we are going through whatever at the time. It only when we go back into good spells we realize but there are risks sadly that most people don’t pull through at all. Some people pull through others don’t. It’s a case of will you or won’t and if you don’t its case of when is enough is enough? Anxiety and Depression don't beat everyone. What makes Anxiety and Depression hard to understand? We can’t and don’t show sadness and anger 24 .7. It’s either misunderstood one way or the other, even both in the case may be always happy or and always sad. Just because you always see a smile doesn’t mean the person is happy underneath and the even the opposite way as strange as it sounds. There’s no proof to say either way or both. The person themselves are fighting with their own feelings and emotions all the time, it’s a big effect for us to get through each hour, minute, second, day, night or and etc. Each and every one of us handles it different ways. Most of us sleep too much most of us sleep too less and others it’s a bit of both. It’s too easy to lose confidence and self – stream, interest in things, work, education or and etc. Some people find having these things in their lives is more helpful in their lives than having nothing. Others it can be a bit of both. Disabilities, health problems, mental health problems, Disorders, Long – Term conditions and Stress. Life is stressful for everyone one way or another coping with everyday ups and downs such as health, education, employment, housing, social lives or and etc, which could mean anything and everything. If have disabilities, health problems, mental health problems, disorders, long – term conditions or etc, you may be more sensitive, emotional and plus most things could take longer to pass compared what it would do with other people.

Accessible information.

Why is accessible information easy read is important?
·       Accessible information easy read is helping to make information easy to read and understand.
·       Nine times out of ten when we read things, it very not easy to read and understand.
·, For example, print can be too small, too many long words and may others things that make information hard for people to read and take in.
·       It can be more so frustrating for a person if what they are reading is important for example a bill to paid or benefit form needing to be posted off to a certain date, even worse someone people may not understand at all what the information is.
·       This is can get the person very much misunderstood if they have people around to look at information.
·       The person may not do anything because they may not understand the information they have been given or sent, which can be very concerning.
·       Not everyone gets’s support and not everyone gets enough support.
·       Things like bullet points could be put in an instructive accessible way, step by step, bullet point, 123, ABC, mainly for those with memory problems and those who have problems taking in information.
·       This could be how to do things or even directions how to get places.
·       Some people find it hard if too much is said to them at once.






Learning how to teach.
·       How can we make teaching and learning put in an accessible way?
·       Teaching needs to be put in an accessible way, easy words, sentences, and pictures.

·       Everyone knows that learning is never meant to be easy, things we don’t isn’t easy simply because we there are things we don’t know.
·        We know that learning isn’t meant to be easy but life is even more challenging for people with disabilities, health problems or and etc.
·        
·        
·       However’ how information is laid would make some different to a way a person learns.
·        
·       Take a look at how people’s disabilities, health problems or and or etc affects their abilities to learn compared to other people.
·       For example: slowing the person down one way or another.
·       This can affect things like the ability to learn, memory one way or another or and understanding.











How can you make

 information more accessible?
Here are a couple examples: easy and clear words, easy and clear picture. I can’t always possible but as many short words and short sentences as possible. 
 Here some links that may help you learn how to make information easy and accessible to read. http://sararevealed.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/up-date-of-accessible-information.html
Please at other refences that could help you to how to make information easy for people to read and understand such as online.

Safety Warning.

Over the past month before Christmas and onwards we have faced a lot of unsafe post such as spam, flagged post or and etc on my groups. We would be most grateful if you see any unsafe post, please report it to us. If you feel it's necessary to report it to Facebook as well as us please, let if you don't how to report it to facebook, this was before we set this group up. 

 If you see a name of a person adding unsafe post, please let us know the name you see, this will help us a lot to remove and block the person who has truly added the unsafe post, last thing we want is to blame the wrong person so we need as much proof you can give. We understand with most things there's handy any proof or none,  if can do your best, thank you.

 If we don't feel it's necessary to report to facebook we will tell you the reason why but don't worry when it comes to safety guarding the chances of us disagreeing on what you think is very rare.



When setting the groups we can't think everything at once but more problems we face the more safety rules we will be adding on our groups, we will get stricter. Our aims of our groups are for us to our best to make our groups as safe as possible. Anyone who does add unsafe post faces been blocked and removed if they are reported by a member or Admin, even reported to facebook if whoever has reported you feels it's necessary.

Hi, guys, this may sound harsh but it's only for everyone's safety on the group. on is in trouble. Having a chat is more than fine, talking about hobbies, interests, and work, what you had for breakfast is fine for example. We understand that you may think are a bit ott but it's your safety we are concerned about. Please do not ask where one another where they live on the group or for any other contact details.
If people want to friends of the groups as well as on by always feel free to pm one another if you want and give your contacts to one another if you chose to.
We not saying everyone would put their personal details on the group some may not realizing the risk cause no one wants everyone to get in contact with them plus there could be a risk of people being hacked and that.
Just to let you know that we have had a member report another one for swearing but they haven't given us a name or any proof of what he saw, which therefore as it is we can't do our job.
If you see something that concerns you that someone is doing something wrong please copy the person's profile on to our pm or keep a note of the person's name.

We like to do our job right and we don't want to want to blame the wrong people. 
Please pm one of us, our names are on the pinned post.
As soon as we receive it we will remove and block the person.
If you see a reason for reporting the person to facebook please do if you can, if not let us know and if one of us doesn't know how to then, we will find an Admin on our team who knows how to, thank you.
Proof of what happened would be most helpful as well thank you. 


Purpose and Safety concern.

We are sorry there's a lot of information as we want to make it as safe and enjoyable for you as possible plus I have Dyslexic and find it hard to write things in a short so sorry if I have repeated anything. 



Anyone who is reported for taking advantage of a vulnerable people or and anyone on this group will be removed and blocked from the group. Please free to report it if you are concerned someone on the group is facing anything bad from anyone. There some people who don't report people because they may think they don't think they can, they may feel scared that the person whose bothering them may give them more grief all or many reasons. Before reporting to us, please make the possible victim aware so they have a say and let them know they are more than welcome to talk to either one, however many of us if it's been. However' we are an Admin team with different skills what one of us can't do the other can and if none of us can't we will search for help elsewhere. 

Please feel free to report someone if you face any bullying or and hate crime this group, this applies whether you vulnerable or not, we will even support you to report the person to facebook if you ask us to, as long as you have as much proof as possible.

If anyone wants to invite anyone they know to this group, please ask them first, only try to add them if they want to join but please ask us first, this can be whether it's people with disabilities or without as long as there's someone with a disability whose knows. We are sorry for any confinements with the purposes and names. Everyone is really welcome as long you follow and respect the rules and rights we give everyone which includes, our safety and rights as well as yours. 

 When we had changed the name to this name we were asked by a member on without disabilities if it's alright for her to be still on here? those of you who have been on here from when we first set up the group you are then welcome to stay if you wish. All it is for future members is where we have made slight changes, which is what I have written the paragraph before this.
