Embarking on a new project..

Hello everyone!

I hope you’ve had a good Christmas? I’ve just finished a good book called Speechless by Kate Darbishire about a girl called Harriet who has cerebral palsy starting secondary. I read it within two hours, it’s amazing that despite our different severities of Cerebral Palsy it was comforting to see that she went through the same struggles I had in school. My question to you dear reader is this; would you like to read about the highs and lows of my school days? I feel in regards to Disability and in particular, teens going to mainstream education that things need to be changed, things that should have been changed and abolished in the ’70s and how at the same time how I was treated like a normal student. I feel like this is the right place to start. FYI to all old teachers and friends nicknames will be given to keep you anonymous!

Should I go for it? Even if I don’t publish it, I think I’ll do it, it’ll be cathartic!

  1. Hi Rachel, I am so happy that you enjoyed reading Speechless!
    I think it would be very brave to write your story, even if it is just for yourself. And probably cathartic as you say. I think a lot of people would be interested in what you have to say.
