To broaden the reach of this incredible program, we looked at how the program could be modified to include Individuals with Differential Abilities. Understanding the unique challenges to working with these individuals, the developer of Writing for the Soul Workshop™ worked closely with organizations, and individuals that could bring ideas and unique perspective to how our core curriculum could be modified to help individuals with differential abilities express their story too. To do what their peers are doing in the program around the world: getting what’s on the inside …out.
The result of this effort was realizing the importance of a unique plan for each individual participant, and a focus on activities that allow for creative expression through art, and story telling, still producing a work of expression included in Writing for the Soul Workshop™ for group publishing. That’s correct. Writing for the Soul Workshop™ has been adapted to include Individuals with Differential Abilities.
“For the first three hours of his life, Eric was a healthy baby boy. My first born son. I was 20 years old, and my new wife and I were so happy …well at least for the first three hours. I’ll never forget when Dr. Wiscomb walked into our room and informed us that Eric had developed the worst kind of meningitis and that Eric probably wouldn’t live a month and that we should consider making burial arrangements. We were devastated to say the least.
Not only did Eric live to be a month old, he is now over 252 months old today! As a result of the meningitis, Eric is legally blind and has Cerebral Palsy. Since his birth, Eric has continued to do things that doctors said he’d never do besides living. He loves walking (something doctors said he would never do), playing basketball, Connect Four, WII, flying kites, singing, and he especially loves Writing for the Soul Workshop™. He’s my best friend, adviser, and TGIM Ambassador to Individuals with Differential Abilities. He is one of big reasons that this program exists.” -Eric L. Jones, Sr., Program Developer.
Donna Kimbrough, with New Northside Baptist Church in St. Louis provided some great insights on why this program is so important for her participants and for the community.
“The City of St. Louis, like many metropolitan areas in the US, has this lost generation of souls….. a portion of our young people are doing good while another portion are dropping out. To catch a child that is falling through the cracks or going through severe personal problems; like a parent on drugs or being abused in some way….. to catch them when their most vulnerable so if they can’t talk about it, they’ll write about it.” -Donna Kimbrough
After experiencing Writing for the Soul Workshop™, this educator in the Philippines shared her experience with the program:
“This program has been very useful, and a powerful means to help our young minds handle stress while learning. It gives inspiration to their studies to help them meet their ambitions.”
Educator Sarah Lankford, Special Education Teacher in the State of Missouri had this to say:
“This workshop is truly amazing and will touch whoever chooses to embrace it and dig deep into themselves.”
