EDUCATION HELPS US TO LEARN WELL. IT HELPS US TO HELP OTHERS MORE. EDUCATION IS HELPING LENAE HELP ME BY ALLOWING ME TO LEARN WITH COMMUNICATION AND ACADEMICS, SO I CAN THINK. IT ALLOWS ME TO PROGRESS. I CAN LEARN MY LESSONS LIKE OTHERS.
When people say autistics should learn to tie their shoes, sort, wash their hands, etc first. why teach them academics if they can't do those things-- what is your response?
I THINK EDUCATION IS SO IMPORTANT, SO I CAN LEARN MY LESSONS, SO I CAN THINK AND REASON. WITHOUT EDUCATION I CAN'T COMMUNICATE ALL I WANT. I CAN'T REACH MY DREAMS. I CAN'T BE TRULY HAPPY. I CAN'T HAVE MY CLOTHES CLEAN AND MY BRAIN BLANK. WITH TIME I CAN LEARN ANYTHING, BUT I CAN'T HAVE A BRAIN THAT IS NOT STIMULATED. WHO WOULD WANT TO DO THE SAME TASK YEAR AFTER YEAR? NOT ME! IT WAS HORRIBLE! I NEED TO LEARN WHAT EVERYONE ELSE LEARNS. I NEED MY EDUCATION JUST AS MUCH AS YOU DO.
You are able to play some games or activities on the ipad. How come you can spell words and thoughts on an ipad or letterboard that is held up but not when it is on the table?
I THINK IT IS BECAUSE I AM NOT ABLE TO MAKE MISTAKES AND IT TAKES A LOT OF CONTROL. I HAVE TO BE SO EXACT THAT I GET NERVOUS. I THINK THE SAME FOR OTHER ACTIVITIES. I CAN BE PRETTY EXACT ONT HE LETTERBOARD, BUT IT IS FINE TO MESS UP BECAUSE I CAN FIX IT WITHOUT A PROBLEM. MY TEACHER CAN'T HELP ME FIX IT AS MUCH ON THE IPAD EXCEPT TALK TO ME LIKE CRAZY TO HELP ME TO FOCUS. IPADS ARE GREAT BUT IT TAKES ME A LOT OF WORK.
