I thought I would post this before I lose my inspiration after watching this youtube video. It’s the trailer of the movie Man of Steel coming out June 14, 1013. Man of steel, if you haven’t figured out already, is a movie about superman.
Superman has always held a connection and also reverence for me. He is someone who can not be who he is openly and he cannot have a known love because that would mean all his enemies could use her against him.
Many people with disabilities don’t always show their potential or even have an opportunity to show it. People with disabilities have the potential for so much they just need help with their disabilities so they’re abilities can shine! Everyone does. Love doesn’t come easily for people with disabilities maybe because of a preconceived notions of disability. But also because, well face it, having someone you care about having a disability is hard work and costly. There are things like the Medicaid Marriage Penalty which would make some people with disabilities choose between love and having the care they need. Also many people with disabilities do not want to see a loved one have to sacrifice for them. So either they don’t seek it out or they don’t act on love that might be a possibility. With adults with disabilities who live with their parents, their parents may discourage it citing all what you’ll find is heart ache.
This movie trailer was very inspirational to me. Everyone who sees this post, please, play this trailer and put yourself in place of the Man of Steel. Now don’t think about all the super powers and physical strength he has. Now, imagine his strange so will, imagine you have this, which all of us can have despite any apparent disability. We all can change the world it just takes perseverance. Many people with disabilities have had to persevere with whatever they have to deal with on a daily basis we just need to believe in ourselves and yes one person can make a difference.

Caregivers have to understand the characteristics of kids on the spectrum and know what the children are trying to communicate by their unexpected or different behaviors. Knowing all this is a tall order and there is no better place to start than with a good book.View Entire Article
