Welcome to Freda fighters first blog on the 15th august 2012.
Our group meets every 4 weeks to discuss several of topics. We have known all of each other for a year now. An initial we came together to learn about our human rights and were we stood in the world.
The staff from the Community focus team in Southport England who work Mersey care are excellent an understanding our needs they support us at conferences and we even attend their away days and help other members of the learning disability teams based in Liverpool at Olive Mount also Hesketh centre in Southport.
Freda Stands for:
We all want to treat fairly when it comes to society:
We all want to show respect regardless of our age or race or religion or sex or disability.
Both for Male and Female and children.
Everyone should treat with dignity and to be respectful.
We all want to make the right choice in life.
The group was asked today to look at some wording that people learning disabilities don’t quite understand to see if there was any words would made easier to understand the therapy ACAT. We look at cycles of where a person is an anxious we look at it putting the word into pictures so they could see it on a person face, or putting on a DVD where people could inactive with it or making the font bigger and so people learning different could see it even suggested putting on cd making audio where they could listen to it. We have put our ideas forewords three of us are going to look at more detail with trainee physiologist.
