If you haven't heard of Hope's Home, it's probably because it's the first daycare of its kind in Canada. It's a medical daycare, which means that children with diverse medical needs can learn, play, and be cared for in an inclusive environment. Here's a video that gives a great overview of the daycare, its mission, and what's at the heart of it all - the children.
I'm still on cloud nine from what I accomplished at daycare today - I successfully brought two very diverse kids together. It was near the end of the day when this break-through occurred; I only had two kids left in my care - one was a kid who uses a wheelchair and cannot speak and the other was a very outspoken kid who does not use a wheelchair.
Please have a listen to my first podcast, which discusses the (in)accessibility issues that surround people with disabilities.
Hello, my name is Denine ("Hi Denine...") and I am an addict. Two years ago, after I bought a Magic Bullet blending system, I started experimenting with various combinations of fruits and vegetables.
Now, I am hooked... on smoothies. I can't go a day without one. If I do, I get really anxious and start to think of how I can get my fix.
This week, I've been familiarizing myself with the art of podcasting. Having worked in radio,
I've developed an ear for audio that's been well-executed. That being said, though, I'd never really listened to a podcast, per se, until a few days ago and I'm not really sure why that is.
I admit it, I have a textdency of leaving people hanging. Sometimes it's for hours... sometimes it's for days!
