Eitas recognizes Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

DD_Awareness_FB_green_479738_7

In 1987, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed March “Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month” and the presidential proclamation called upon Americans to provide the encouragement and opportunities necessary for people with developmental disabilities to reach their potential.

This seems like a great opportunity for me to introduce our new blog and social media presence.  We hope to use our blog, Facebook and Twitter to communicate on a regular basis with those we support, their families, providers and the community as a whole.  

I hope you’ll check back frequently, learn to use these resources and know that you’ll get useful, up-to-date information on many topics- not only related to eitas and our daily operations, but on the disability and special services communities as a whole and even the larger Kansas City area in which we live and work.

The month commemorates the progress we have made toward improving the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities while bringing to light the challenges that remain in achieving full inclusion for all people.  Join me in advocating for inclusion!  Please like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter!  #DDAwareness

    Skype has opened up its internet-centered client beta for the entire
    world, soon after establishing it largely in the United states and U.K.

    previous this four weeks. Skype for Online also now works with Chromebook
    and Linux for immediate online messaging interaction (no voice and video however, individuals demand a connect-in set up).

    The expansion of your beta brings support for an extended list of
    spoken languages to aid bolster that worldwide usability

    Your books have meant a lot to me and I reflexively found myself jumping to your defense on the Sweeping Zen website. As a childhood victim of therapists and their big pharma masters the language of her article really bothered me. I railed against her in the comments section as childishly as any zen teacher. I think the big question for me is, is there any benefit to practicing buddhism? It all seems pretty pointless to me. I’ve seen no evidence that long-time practitioners are any happier or wiser than anyone else and they kind of seem ill-suited to help anyone else. Anyone else finished with this sad theater? Who says there has to be answers anyway?
