theraphy and medication of my cerebral palsy son

Jennevey , Boracay M

Dear Sir/Maam, It is with a feeling of misgiving and diffidence with which I address this note to you; and it is only my great anxiety for the cause I present, which prompts me for the first time in my life to "beg" from a total stranger.You may consider this rather a strange letter coming from a stranger as it does, one whom you never met. “Special needs” just doesn’t sound cool, although out of all the terms, I tend to use it a lot because it’s the most recognized term. “Differently-abled” is cooler but harder to explain and I don’t always want to explain. “Disabled” emphasizes negativity, and “handicapped” just seems outdated to me. I know, I know: Why are labels necessary? Sometimes, they just are. I don’t always want to say "junjun has nerves disorder ”—vague terminology comes in handy for forms, special accommodations at places, nosy people. I’ve had many lively discussions with other parents, and all of us seem to agree there should be a better term. I recently met a mom who describes her child as “freaky-perfect.” That one didn’t work for me, as I think “freak” has some bad associations. A lot of people in the autism community describe kids as having “quirks,” which I think is awesome but that term doesn’t fit junjun, who has nerves disorder. I mean, it’s quirky that he wants "CHAMPORADO" for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’ve been known to say junjun has “special powers”—a lot of people liked that term when I threw it out there, but then I got some scathing criticism from an adult with disabilities who said, among many things, that it made it sound as if people with disabilities have the power to fly or shoot lightning bolts from their fingertips. I still thought it could work well for a child. Although it would be really cool if junjunncould shoot lightning bolts from his fingertips. When I talk about JunJun his little sis, I tend to say that Junjun is just like other kids but some things take him longer to do. Atalia knows the term “special needs” and used to tell people “JunJUn needs special needs,” which really didn’t work. One wording tactic that I have no qualms about is ”people first” language—that means you put the person in front of the disability. So instead of saying “a special needs child” you say “a child with special needs.” And instead of saying “An autistic adult” you say “An adult with autism.” I never knew about it till I had Junjun, but once I did, it seemed like a respectful thing to do. If you have a kid with special needs or who’s differently abled or who has special powers, etc., what terms do you use when you have to? If you are a parent of so-called typical kids, what words do you use to describe children you know who have special needs? If there is a poor man among you, one of your brothers, in any of the towns of the land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart, nor close your hand to your poor brother/sister; but you shall freely open your hand to him, and generously lend him sufficient for his need in whatever he lacks. ” “If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” When parents learn about any difficulty or problem in their child’s development, this information comes as a tremendous blow. The day my child was diagnosed as having a disability, I was devastated—and so confused that I recall little else about those first days other than the heartbreak. Another parent described this event as a “black sack” being pulled down over her head, blocking her ability to hear, see, and think in normal ways. Another parent described the trauma as “having a knife stuck” in her heart. Perhaps these descriptions seem a bit dramatic, yet it has been my experience that they may not sufficiently describe the many emotions that flood parents’ minds and hearts when they receive any bad news about their child.Many things can be done to help yourself through this period of trauma.
