I have spent hours and literally days combing the web looking for all the right products to post in the library and have found many gems but they have become either too expensive for the average disabled user like myself, or they are too knowledge obsessed in their process to even begin using the program they offer.
In my life experience with education, it was never the “pre-test” that got the “right people” in the “right seats” it was more of a pre-amble that got everyone excited and going in a direction that led to a “win-win” for both students and teachers alike.
I feel a Mark Zuckerberg bug in my thinking – in the designing and developing a cool online program of neuroplasticity and then just give it away for free. last night i was thinking about your comments about things i have written and thought maybe i should translate all the things i did over the last eleven years into a systematic daily routine of making models, doing math based exercises, reading classic literature (out loud to a friend or sometimes the wall), making food on the stove top and reading how-to-prepare books in the process (smelling and tasting and touching and hearing the process are all sensory based points to ignite the neurons to fire and wire, all day every day).
i then would do three hour long sessions of tai chi, every day six days a week and then go to church on Sunday to unwind from the week but then spend a few hours at the beach just listening to the waves and the gulls overhead – and feel the breeze on my face and rustling through my hair.
I did these things and more, but I did it day after day, week after week, year after year, and yes, for “eleven years.”
I am more concentrated on helping others right now, and in doing the fundamental basics of neuroplasticity, I am still feeling its mindful effects even with my own challenges daily with MS and of course the minute-by-minute challenges with autism spectrum disorder. but whatever, that just is-what-is. i don’t really allow it to knock-me-out anymore. i just say, you know….g-t-f-o-m-w “I’m drivin’ now.”
but back to developing a product to post for neuroplasticity seekers in the library; maybe you said it best, just translate some of my comments into a useful writing or series of what-i-did-over-time to face off with MS.
