Immediate Impact of The Arc Alliance Blood Drive

Many people think that donating blood is a nice thing, but just can't be bothered with taking the time to go and donate. Truth be told I had the same thought. It's not often that someone donates and gets immediate feed back on who their donation will impact. However, at our third blood drive on June 14th one donor Frank Haas, spouse of Karen a staff at The Arc Alliance, was told that his donation was going directly to CHOP and will be given to an infant in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. As I mentioned On June 14th CHOP's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit needed Blood for a premature baby! On that same morning, The Arc Alliance hosted our 3rd blood drive, where Frank [...]

Chandler Balch – Teachers and the Different ways they help me!

Hello everybody. Today my blog will be about the different ways teachers can help students with disabilities. Just like everyone else, kids with disabilities can go to public school. There are different challenges in school that kids with a disability have to face. Some of the challenges I have to overcome are; sometimes I have trouble seeing small print. That means at times I need things enlarged. I also have difficulty tracking. That means sometimes when I am reading, my eyes will wander and I will lose my spot. My teachers highlight every other line to make it easier for me to track. Don't get me wrong, they don't make everything easy for me, because most of the time they expect me to be [...]

Did you know? March is I/DD Awareness Month

Hello everybody. Today my blog will be about Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Awareness month and my opinions of it. Mr. Scott has given me some thought starters to help get me started. I have not heard anything about I/DD month in school. The word needs to get out! I think that is because the school is not familiar with it. I also think that school should give assemblies on these many disabilities through an assembly to all students. The assembly would be about the different types of disabilities. I think would be great to have guest speakers talk to my fellow classmates. I think it would be helpful to have students try out some different modes of transportation besides walking. They would get to walk [...]
