One-armed CBeebies host ‘scaring’ children … Children don’t notice the differences. The parents need to think about how they would feel if it were their child born without an arm. It is great for children with disabilities to see people like them on the television. It just goes to show how important it is to have positive disabled role models on CBeebies and television in general.”

EMPLOYMENT


Tim Jones: Best and worst decisions of my career … My best decision concerns Steve,* who has Asperger’s syndrome. Steve had spent much of his life being moved between residential homes. … my best decision was to persevere. In doing so, I found out what Steve wanted was to be five minutes from his mother and to have his own front door. Through a shared ownership arrangement with United Response, Steve moved into his own home, near his mother, three years ago. Now he has a support team he has hand-picked and control over his life.

One of the best things for me is that I’ve learned a lot from Steve. He knows what is important to him and is about to become something of a “quality controller”, letting us know what sort of job we’re doing in supporting others. Steve has joined our leadership team and brings a refreshing perspective.”:

Class acts: Why public sector careers are more attractive than ever … Emily Scott, training and volunteer support officer at the National Autistic Society – a role she took after graduating in 2007 – agrees. “I don’t think anyone’s job is completely safe at the moment, but I really do think that compared to my peers in the private sector, I feel a lot more secure. I think a big part of that is because in a charity, you tend to get nurtured, so your training and development is tailored to your role, with the consequence that you have a more key role earlier on in your career in than in some private sector organisations where you have to start at the very bottom and wait a long time for real responsibility and autonomy.”:

Filipino-American Autism Community

Autism is a part of our existence. This is what brings us together in this community.

Autism transcends geographical and cultural boundaries. Maybe it is a culture in itself. One to understand and accept.

The Filipino-American Autism Community is a support group focusing on the social and recreational needs of families with autism. It is a gathering of friends who share their experiences to recognize that our children can and will live a fun and active life despite the disability.

Endless Ocean (Wii) Rated 3+

Dive into tropical waters and discover the life aquatic, a life of nature, beauty and intrigue. In Endless Ocean, you are the guest of a tranquil sea filled with creatures so unique they must be experienced up-close. More of an experience than a game of any sort, Endless Ocean gives you the freedom to explore underwater locations, searching for fish to photograph and place in your log, or simply take a relaxing swim among the inhabitants of the sea. Come face-to-face with such animals as angelfish, penguins, walruses and dolphins. Whilst underwater, you can even find lost ruins and secret diving locations.

From the Archives

Theatrophone – the 19th-century iPod

Sickly and often bedridden, by February 1911 French novelist Marcel Proust had one constant companion in the solitary confines of his cork-lined Paris sanctuary: a mysterious contraption that he kept by his bed. When he wasn’t labouring over his magnum opus, A la recherche du temps perdu , Proust would collapse into bed, grasp a pair of wires trailing into a primitive headset, and lose himself in Claude Debussy’s opera Pelléas et Mélisande.”

ROBOTICS

Berti the robot has human touch … One of the most sophisticated robots created in the UK has made its public debut – with a game of rock-paper-scissors. Robots like Berti could be used in the development of prosthetic limbs for people who have been in car accidents or to carry out extremely dangerous jobs such as land mine clearance.”:
