I have set up my citabook (book of quotations) for those who express so well (in French of course) the things that mater most.

communication is a right

Writing about web page http://www.afasic.org.uk/index.htm

As language professionals we sometimes assume that every child can communicate. My personal experience of semantic-pragmatic disorder has made me question my assumptions. Being misunderstood, struggling to make others listen, trying to get the right words out at the right time, knowing how to connect with others - these are the real challenges faced by many with autistic spectrum disorders. Afasic helps those who cannot get their voice heard.

O'Farrell rightly acknowledges the importance of language! We are each responsible for the messages we impart. :)

Goodbye to Harry

Today we had to say goodbye to Harry. Our lovely bunny had been part of the family for 6 years, so named because of his white lightning flash on his nose which the kids thought made him look like Harry Potter, he was playful and very sociable. He will be greatly missed. Harry loved you to stroke his nose and would go into a trance whenever you did. His passion for brown bread played havoc with his teeth and he once fell in the pond trying to get a drink. Harry you were a star and we'll never forget you!Harry MacKinnon
