Hi guys and gals!!!
As you know by now, my Kickstarter project has been successfully funded! YAY!
It’s a fabulicious time for us.
If there’s been one thing that I’ve learned from managing my disability and going to school, it’s planning stuff.
That’s what I’m doing now! I’m making deadlines for myself, creating possible story lines/scenes, developing character traits and creating settings for them, as well.
Along with these, I’m slowly improving my writing and thinking.
I need to share this with you- When I was in 1st to 5th grade, I was very good in reading, but very disorganized in writing. My teachers and occupational therapists said that I used to come up with the most creative stuff, but I didn’t know how to put them in order.
A good example of me not being able to fully organize myself, is when I would write with a pencil, I would write in zig-zags instead of straight lines and also my story line would sometimes go off in many directions that didn’t really have anything to do with what I was writing about! It was crazy.
Children without disabilities learn how to organize themselves by actively participating and listening to the stuff around them.
However, children with disabilities tend to have a really hard time doing these tasks, by getting distracted easily and sometimes, it’s just hard.
Simple things like knowing what to do first, second and third when setting up something are easier for typically developing kids to do than kids with physical disabilities, who don’t have the ability to move smoothly, get an object, reach for it, grab it and then release it where they want to put it.
For example, some children with disabilities tend to respond to a question or comments slower than normal children do, in some cases.
Because they don’t have this experience, their brain’s wiring has yet to make those connections, and they don’t really know how to yet.
I was one of those children, guys and gals.
That’s when my teachers and occupational therapists and I decided to take action.
I practiced, and it took me eons, guys and gals. EONS.
Although, I got better and better. Because of those eons, I’ve improved massively.
Now, I’m very organized in my writing, and I now know how to meet deadlines! I actually know what to do, and I couldn’t be happier!!!
Guys and gals, I’m so excited about writing and planning TANDA!
It’s only the beginning, everyone!
