Scene: Smokelbg has left the office of Dr. Phil and is on her way to see Dr. Deepak Chopra and Dr. Drew. Earlier in the day she had an appointment with Dr. OZ who referred her to Dr. Phil. It is very significant to show the New Wave Doctors what will happen to NLD Syndrome if it is not given the support of a community and the opportunities to become successful in today’s society. Smokelbg wants to enlist the help of the most innovative doctors to RECOGNIZE the importance of consistent testing of NLD Syndrome. NLD Syndrome may be more common. She wants the New Wave Doctors to understand how unilateral decisions have discriminated against and found a way to avoid giving support to children/adults with extraordinary minds, unique abilities, and multi-level learning styles whom our society has labeled disabled. Smokelbg can’t believe how a school for young pregnant mothers in the mainstream has also been affected just recently by unilateral decisions. It is time for Smokelbg to FIGHT LIKE HELL on the assessment. This story will explain to the New Wave Doctors – the medical, psychological, social/emotional effect it places on NLD Syndrome, other exceptionalities, and the mainstream. It will compare/contrast NLD Syndrome to the mainstream RECOGNIZABLE and UNRECOGNIZABLE.
All the release of information forms have been properly completed. Your information has arrived and Dr. Chopra and Dr. Drew will be seeing you in about 10 minutes. We will get the notes from this session back to Dr. OZ and Dr. Phil as soon as possible. We need you to fill out and update some information on your insurance form. Underneath the insurance forms we have placed our release of information forms to be filled out . Anywhere you see an X please fill out the area and make sure it is dated and signed. You will be seated in the RED ROOM and the doctors with be with you momentarily.
Wow! Is this one of the clones from the movie Stepford Wives? She sure has her speech down. Maybe it’s me and this RED ROOM I’m sitting in. Colors do affect a person’s mood. It could be me connecting the dots of Dr. Phil’s room number 666 and the color red.
Okay, Smoke 1 lb or Smokel Bug the doctors are waiting for you.
Hold Up, it is pronounced as SMOKE L.B.G. This has happened to me many times before. I understand when there is a problem with reading words, spacing of letters, or even seeing the word for the first time it can be pronounce wrong. People with Dyslexia and NLD Syndrome have problems in this area.
I am neither one. It was just an error on my part.
Do you mispronounce words? Do you run the lettering of the words together? Have you ever been tested on word reading or pseudo word decoding (ability to pronounce nonsense words)?
Hey, I made a mistake. I do not make mistakes very often. Dr. Chopra and Dr. Drew will see you now.
I think it is time to turn her desk away from the RED ROOM. Maybe a cooler view of just looking at a picture of the ocean waves would loosen her rigid behavior (thinking to herself). Dr. Chopra and Dr. Drew, thank you both for letting me have this opportunity to visit with you today.
Thank you for coming. We received your packages of information and I appreciate the books. This is short notice and I have not had the time to brief myself on all information, but this is very fascinating.
Smoklbg, the books are much appreciated and I haven’t had the opportunity to review all of the information on NLD Syndrome. I am not familiar with Nonverbal Learning Disability. You have a lot of concerns. How can we help you?
I consider you both as New Wave Doctors. Dr.Chopra your strong connection to MIND, BODY, SPIRIT, and the relationship with LOVE, HEALTH, HAPPINESS is vastly needed. These components would be very essential in helping people with NLD Syndrome become successful. Dr.Drew your straight forwardness on drugs and alcohol addictions will help many individuals realize the changes in one’s behavior and the harm it causes to the body. The end results will cost the individual his life or another innocent bystander their life. You both have lost people very close to you. Dr. Chopra I’m deeply sorry for the lost of your long time friend of 20 yrs., Michael Jackson.
Dr. Drew I am deeply sorry for the lost of your most recent patient and friend Jeff Conaway. The key word today is INTERVENTION. I understand that both of you have been criticized for your methods, techniques, and the sincerity of your positions. I need your help in giving RECOGNITION to NLD Syndrome. You both can help me with the importance of showing the world how people diagnosed with NLD syndrome need an inclusive protective environment. They need to be surrounded by those who are committed, educated about NLD Syndrome, and willing to make accommodations for NLD’s unique learning style. Strategies and developing coping skills for the manifestation of their behavior needs to be put in place. DEDICATION without MEDICATION and INTERVENTION can be very productive for NLD Syndrome. SOCIAL SKILLS and LIFE SKILLS would be the primary teaching of their program. These are very key elements for inclusion in the community and society. I want the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to feel the heat from the grill. They need to be held accountable for not incorporating a syndrome that can interact with other disorders but be left out of a diagnostic manual. The APA did not RECOGNIZE the damage it has caused by not enlisting NLD Syndrome for as funding, insurance, and school placement. A psychiatric community that has contradicted themselves. They have 38,000 psychiatrists under their umbrella. This is a large COMMUNITY. NLD Syndrome has no supports, no umbrella, no COMMUNITY and is left out in the rain. Hell, even Dan Akroyd and John Belushi in the Blues Brothers were a team. Sam had Dave. Gladys Knight had the Pips. Ike Turner had Tina Turner until he messed up. I want my New Wave Doctors bringing in NLD Syndrome on the note of the Blues Brothers, “Everybody Needs Somebody”.(Everyone in the room puts on their dark shades, fedoras (hats), and starts imitating the Blues Brothers)
Aaah, singing and dancing is very good for the body and uplifts the spirit. I get your message Smoke L.B. G. Yes, my secretary warned me that you had a very tricky name.
That felt great! Dr. Chopra you got a mean step. Work it out. Smokelbg I get your message loud and clear. I tell you what, I enjoyed shaking my bootie in therapy today.
I learned that dance step in my country, New Delhi, India. Okay, what is the next step.
It is TIME to put the pieces of the puzzle together. NLD Syndrome along with many others have a problem getting the whole picture. I’m going to reiterate very important points from some of my stories to show WHAT’S GOING ON.
I like me some Marvin Gaye. Go Ahead, Go Ahead.
We will start with Welcome To My Blog.
1.) We meet people who may appear different, but they shouldn’t change themselves to fit our mold or our way of thinking.
2.) Before we judge them, we first need to learn about them.
1.) We judge people and convict them before we ever get the facts.
2.) We are not trying to learn about others. They will be excluded if they don’t click with our way of thinking.
Hey Those Are Not My Eyeglasses
1.) A person with a right hemisphere disorder only has use of one side of the brain making it uni-modal. The creative side has damages which causes problems in the 4Rs (reading, riting, rithmetic, and relationships). NLD Syndrome central nervous system is out of whack causing them to have a severe coordination problem. They are at risk for depression, anxiety, stress, and panic attacks. NLDers appear to be annoying, very loud, awkward, and it is very difficult for them to express themselves appropriately. It is hard for them to initiate a conversation but once they get going, the conversation is on. The conversation is relevant to them. The conversation may not be relevant to you. In the mainstream there are lots of people who intentionally want everything to be about them. People with NLD Syndrome have no clue. We need to TEACH them to understand how to share, take turn, not to view everyone is just like them, emotions of themselves and understanding emotions of others. It is very important for NLDers to learn and understand what happens when they act out impulsively and the consequences for their actions.
2.) Their view is very distorted and it causes faulty perception. They miss a lot of information, cannot read people, read between the line, and do not interact with their environment. NLDers want to interact with their environment but don’t know how to interact. They can be taught.
3.) People with NLD Syndrome are NOT EMOTIONALLY DISTURBED and their BEHAVIORS are UNINTENTIONAL.
4.) Give them an explanation and SPELL IT OUT.
1.) Unilateral Decisions are made. The people who make these decisions has a one-sided view. It is by their OWN CHOICE not to be connected to his/her environment. They do not desire to interact with other cultures or understand cultural diversity.
2.) Their views are distorted and their ones size fits all decision-making process is very disturbing. They will go through back doors and do what ever is necessary to get the results they want. They have a Duncan MacLeod Highlander Effect. “THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE.”
3.)Those who make unilateral decisions are bound and determined to keep out programs that are effective and have shown positive results. People who make unilateral decision strategies are saying, YOU ARE A BUDGET CUT.
EXAMPLE: Rick Snider, the Governor of Michigan, made a decision that was quite disturbing against Catherine Ferguson Academy. He sent a strong message to WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD. Rick Snider’s decision stripped African-American Women of their right to be educated in an environment which gives them the opportunity to succeed regardless of their plight of being single mothers and continuing their education. Why would you want to cancel a school with a high success rate? Rick Snider and his financial manager Dave Thomas’ message rang out to African-American Women and the African-American Communities, “YOU ARE BLACK AND BACK IN THE KITCHEN BAREFOOT AND PREGNANT”. “YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO MOVE AHEAD.” Wow! Big time DISCRIMINATION AGAINST WOMEN across the nation. This message reaches out to all diverse cultures and has been pointed out in the story, Got No Time To Be Disabled (located in the March 2011 archives), and the Look Of Love Valentine’s Day (located in the February 2011 archives).
The closing of the school has been OVERTURNED but the scent and the taste linger on. You can reverse the decision but the hurt and pain will last a lifetime, especially for those of us who has lived this already and to see it happen all over again. So you see Dr. Chopra and Dr. Drew, CHOICES are very key elements when Unilateral Decisions are being made. The biggest picture involved RACE, DISCRIMINATION, EDUCATION, WOMEN, FUNDING, ACHIEVEMENTS, GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION and much more concerning Catherine Ferguson Academy. I mention in my tweets that RACE is a key element but it does not ride alone. The following factors are integrated into the unilateral decision of the closing of Catherine Ferguson Academy. WE KNOW THE DEAL. WE KNOW THE DRILL. There are a lot of CHOICES of CARDS to PLAY from. We don’t always have to play the same card. The CONSERVATIVES and the REPUBLICANS HANDS REALLY ROCK THE CRADLE on the above issues.
We now have a clearer picture of how these men feel about Cultural Diversity. We are back to the Highlander Effect, “THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE”. So if you deny certain under-privilege cultures the opportunity to succeed, you are denying them their right to SURVIVE. The NO CHOICE people will LOSE.
Whatever we assumed about the Conservative and the Republican Party we no longer have to Assume. One thing about NLDers you will never have to assume how they feel about you. They will always tell you, Truth By No Fault.
They hope people with NLD Syndrome will one day learn to paraphrase their statements, sugarcoat, or lie. Would you rather be lied to? Do you what to know the truth? Can you handle the truth? Is this one of the reasons why people are so annoyed with those who have NLD Syndrome? Do you have this characteristic or trait of NLD Syndrome that turns people off?
Dr. Chopra and Dr. Drew, do you mind if we take a short recess? I need to have round table discussion with Tavis Smiley, Dr. Cornell West, Rachel Maddow, Rev. AL Sharpton, Wolf Blitzer, and MSNBC. I need to contact the President of the United States, The Onion, Ed Schultz, Michael Eric Dyson, NPR, and Prince.
Go ahead Smokelbg. Why Prince? I do not understand.
Prince has the EYES that will reveal it all, just like Dr. Phil has those talking EYEBROWS which tells the story of his approval or disapproval. It is the nonverbal communication that will tell the story of each of the key player chosen above. NLDers would be lost in this meeting because they will not be able to decipher the body language nor read between the lines.
I would love to be at that conference. Do you think we could get Prince to sing and dance at the round table meeting? It would be one hell of icebreaker to get things started. That’s my song by the Black-Eye Peas, Let’s Get It Started In Here.
There is a chart you can refer to online that shows NLD interacting DIRECTLY with other disorders such as ASPERGER SYNDROME, OCD, AND TIC DISORDER. There are outside factors of learning disabilities that affect NLD Syndrome such as AUTISM DISORDER, PDD LIKE DISORDERS, ANXIETY DISORDERS. Go to NLDONLINE.CA.
I want my chosen team to PLEASE READ-DSM5 TO EXCLUDE ASPERGER, PDD-NOS AND NLD IN 2013, WAIT…. WHAT. This article is written by LIFE DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTE (LDI). This article points out that particular issues for African Americans families are typically later referred for being diagnosed at a much later age than their Caucasian counterparts. The story GOT NO TIME TO BE DISABLED points out how race is played out in an under privilege area. Information was provided to demonstrate how other cultures can be discriminated against.
We Need An Interpreter
1.) NLDers can’t interpret body language, abstract language, and are unable to communicate socially. It causes a massive amount of confusion within the person which in return causes them to act out UNINTENTIONALLY and their behavior to manifest. They need a verbal explanation.
2.) Grand Guardians-trusted adults who give verbal and concrete explanations to NLDers to help interpret the world around them. They mentor, develop strategies, coping skills, provide accommodations to help people with NLD Syndrome to work around their deficits. Grand Guardians help advocate the needs of NLDers in order for those with NLD Syndrome to one day be able to advocate for themselves.
3.) Take the fluff out of NLDers program and make their life-like The Reader’s Digest Books_Condensed.
4.) Give them factual information and documentation. Only teach BENEFICIAL SKILLS.
INTERPRETERS FOR EXTRAORDINARY MINDS, UNIQUE ABILITIES, AND MULTI-LEVEL LEARNING STYLES
1.) Grand Guardians, mentors, psychiatrists, speech pathologists, occupational therapists, attorneys, advocates, family and friends who are knowledgeable and trustworthy.
1.) People who are very familiar with their friend/associates behaviors INTENTIONALLY create havoc to make them act out. They set people up for failure.
2.) They will make negative comments to always break the self-esteem down of their peers. It is the negative nucleus factor of you need me, I don’t need you. I am better than you. I made you who you are. I have more money than you. I YI YI!
3.) As far as friendships and relationships, they choose to unfriend you at the drop of a dime and manipulate behaviors of others.
INTERPRETERS FOR THE MAINSTREAM, RECOGNIZABLE AND UNRECOGNIZABLE(Good and Bad)
1.) advisors, attorneys, coaches, analysts, managers, CEOs, counselors, Supreme Court Justices, Chief of Staff, Presidents, Prime Ministers, etc.
2.) Carl Rove-former Senior Advisor, Deputy Chief to Former President George Bush (Bush’s Brain) BAD BABY! Carl Rove is Commander and Chief of RACISM and HATRED of all TIMES. Money cannot buy everything especially a President. Carl Rove thinks it can.
3.) Dominique Strauss-Kahn IMF-manager of the International Monetary Fund (sex scandals, harassment, and the NO NO THOUGHTS) BAD BABY! Totally out of control. Ruined a magnificent career. This dude has really poor judgement. He is not a TRUSTED ADULT
4.) Silvio Berlusconi-Prime Minister of Italy (sex scandals, and corruptions) BAD BABY! Trusted Adult-No. You would not trust your child with a person like this or MITT ROMNEY’S dead dog! No!
5.) Clarence Thomas-Supreme Court Justice-Conservative who will not flinch when it comes to judging the consequences of others. (He has to learn and understand the whole picture) UNINTENTIONAL VS INTENTIONAL
Read Who In The World Is NLD? (located in the January 2011 archive). BAD BABY! OUT of TOUCH and a sell out. Trusted Adult-No! Thomas needs to leave the Supreme Court with his outdated ideas. DETHRONE!
1.) Shows traits and characteristics of NLD Syndrome
2.) Accommodations used to help NLD maneuver around their deficits
NLD Syndrome is the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART. Choices and opportunities are not provided to them in order to have support from a community. People with NLD Syndrome without the necessary support will end up being institutionalized, imprisoned, or dead. I am quite sure this is not the choices they would make for themselves.
Companies support one another. They either merge together, interconnect, or buy each other out to keep themselves from failing. Banks and the Auto Industry do it all the times.
1.) Apple interconnect with Twitter
2.) Microsoft interconnect with Facebook
3.) Huffington Post and AOL
4.) MSNBC and Comcast
5.) AT&T and T-mobile
6.) Sprint and Nextel
7.) Best Buy and Radio Shack
8.) Sears and Kmart
This list can go on and on. Oprah, Stedman Graham, and Gayle King have supported each other for many years. Hell, even Oprah’s dogs support her on the cover of O Magazine. We have companies that are Watchdogs.
1.) Media Matters-monitors the inaccuracies of the Conservatives and the media.
2.) Consumer Report is the Watch Dog for the Consumer.
Come on people! Where are the dogs that will watch out for NLD Syndrome? Snoop Dogg watches out for his Doggs. NLD Syndrome ends up in the Dog’s House. Why would you vanish Asperger Syndrome to lump these other syndromes all together? Why would the American Psychiatric Association avoid putting NLD Syndrome on their list? What is the American Psychiatric Association’s real agenda? Does the APA have a problem with cultural diversity? Go back and read Got No Time To Be Disabled. Is the American Psychiatric Association going through the back door to discriminate against those who are under privileged? Is this one of the ways the American Psychiatric Association can institutionalize and imprison a diverse culture of people by denying them the opportunity of educational accommodation, job accommodation, funding, insurance, and supports from a community. Will the APA decision for the DSM-5 resemble the Catherine Ferguson Academy decision? Now pay close attention. If you have a disorder that is RECOGNIZED by the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION with UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS how will NLD Syndrome/other exceptionalities and behaviors be judged against the mainstream behaviors. There have been numerous outbreaks of behaviors by government officials, RECOGNIZABLE AND UNRECOGNIZABLE.
Why would the APA want to close the gap and make it appear that all BEHAVIORS ARE INTENTIONAL? Who is the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION really trying to get rid of? Who are they trying to set up for failure? Can we trust the APA? Do we assume they work in the best interest of the people? WE KNOW THE DRILL.
WE KNOW THE DEAL. We no longer need to assume anymore about the APA and who they are connected to. The key words are UNINTENTIONAL VS INTENTIONAL. Close the gap and everyone will be judge on INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS by conservative judges that may not Flinch. Go to my blog and read the stories and tell me what you think.
It is time to connect the dots and FIGHT ON THE ASSESSMENT.
If you ever slip into a coma, survive an aneurysm, stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage, Parkinson disease, diabetes, hydrocephalus, any disease that causes damage to the brain-WHO WILL YOU RESEMBLE? YOU ARE NOW DISABLED. WILL YOU BE PROVIDED WITH THE NECESSARY SUPPORT TO SURVIVE?
Remember the message the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION is sending. People with NLD SYNDROME will not be RECOGNIZED, will not be provided with SUPPORT, and have NO RIGHTS FOR QUALITY OF LIFE.
DEDICATION: THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY WHO HAS PROVIDED A COMMUNITY, INTERVENTION, NEW WAVE MEDICINES AND TREATMENT TO SUPPORT WHATEVER QUALITY OF LIFE THAT IS PENDING.
