Four Sea Starshttp://four-sea-stars.blogspot.com
This is about the daily grind with young kids ages 7, 5, and 1 and everything that goes with it. From wishing I were somewhere else (more often than you would like to know) to how I'm managing to get through the day without totally loosing the plot. My oldest has Asperger's and he's the best behaved out of the whole lot.
Making Congregations Inclusive of People with Disabilitieshttp://inclusivecongregations.blogspot.com
Many congregations, no matter what the religion, have closed their doors to, or do not know how best to include people with disabilities. In this blog I will report stories of friends, myself, and others who have been excluded and included by congregations
Aspergers Teens in Crisishttp://aspergersteenhelp.blogspot.com
Our goal is to provide teens and young adults with Aspergers Syndrome support and a safe place when in crisis. By offering a peer-to-peer “crisis chat line” which would allow teens and young adults with Aspergers, who may be in crisis, to chat with another teen with Aspergers who truly understands what their peer is going through (it is so important for young people to feel they have a safe place to talk about their feelings), offering education to parents, family members and friends (teaching them ways to notice signs of crisis in their son or daughter), offering “Social Meet-Ups” so teens with Aspergers can meet other teens in a fun setting (“Assateague Bonfire Night”, bowling, hiking, computer and gaming classes just to name a few) and offer support and friendship to each other with the guidance of adults who care.

Dyslexia And Mehttp://thedyslexicstudent.wordpress.com
A mature university graduate sharing the trials and triumphs of living with Dyslexia and Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome I decided to create a blog to share my journey seeing life through a dyslexic lens. I was diagnosed after leaving compulsory education when, at the age of 25, I decided to go back to college and university to study a degree that fascinated me, in History, Celtic and Anglo-Saxon Studies. It came as no real shock as I had struggled through school with little to no support. I ended up dropping out of school before gaining any real qualifications because both my schools refused to recognise there was a problem with my reading and writing abilities. Despite being widely recognised as a learning difficulty, I view my dyslexia as an ability! Although I struggle with reading and writing, my thought process is quite different to those around me. Instead of seeing things in a linear way from A to B, I take a different approach, which can be positive in looking at things as a whole. I hope to highlight the issues with dyslexia and scotopic sensitivity syndrome for those who wish to understand this (dis)ability more. I am also writing this blog in the hope to inspire those with dyslexia who have yet to embrace the positive side of our so called ‘learning difficulty’ by showing that the ability to think outside of the box can be an ability in itself!
