Collaging in the gifts… ka-pow!

Every once in a while someone shows up to a workshop with something gorgeous and I love figuring out how we might incorporate it into our work…  In this case, Matteo, age 8, sent this beautiful drawing of a clone* to help alleviate our fears of drawing in our person centred planning as it might apply to employment workshop.  Oh if we could only all of us draw clones this good!  I really liked how it worked for our “flow of the day” poster.

Thanks Matteo!  Your drawing made our day!

*this entry altered to correct certain important details.  It’s a clone, not a storm trooper.  Asking a geeky friend what the difference was created the conditions for a half hour lecture on the difference and how it applies to the chronology of the Empire.  Ahem.  Sorry.

Director of Research, Training and Development, Spectrum Society for Community Living. As well as being responsible for in-house training and research on best practices in the field of helping people with disabilities organize their supports, I support self advocacy groups, contract to provide training and workshops to other agencies and groups and facilitate inclusive research groups. I am the author/illustrator of three books, co-editor of a new anthology for 2012, and co-editor of Spectrum Press. My passion is creating networks of best practice leaders in our field to share person-centred alternatives in how people with disabilities can be facilitated to live lives where their gifts are necessary components in their communities. I am currently half way through a Masters degree in Interdisciplinary studies, focusing on Equity and Adult Education, and particularly on how people with intellectual disabilities may be supported in participatory leadership groups.
