Wind Beneath My What!

Nanna Boo Who, Guess who’s here. Oh My God. Get on in here!   Let Nanna’s age-old eyes peep at you. I can’t believe what a fine young lady you have become. My Grand-baby has really shot up from a string bean to a luscious young sweet potato. Nanna Boo Who isn’t that supposed to be OMG! No, whose writing this story. Okay! What brings you to my neck of the hood. Nanna can’t you say the neck of your woods? Nanna could say a lot of things but the last time I did your mother got a whiff of what Mr. Roger’s taught in his neighborhood when he got pissed off.  Don’t you go saying the word pissed off to your MaMa. Grandma! Oh Lawd! What did I say wrong? What did I forget? Whenever you call me out as Grandma instead of Nanna Boo Who something has gone south. Did you forget my birthday?  Child If Nanna forget anything it would not be your birthday. I forgot my WordPress password and the support was wonderful. It has been so long since I had a new password. Thank You WordPress! 🙂 Give Credit Where Credit is Due.

I went to your favorite website, Etsy.com to buy you a gift. As you say, “Dare to be different and Dare to own it.” Who taught me that? The one and only Nanna Boo Who. I would have loved if you baked my favorite German Chocolate Cake. Well, I did better than that. I ordered you a cake from Dean and Deluci. Nanna, you are all over the grid. Sho-nuff!  I would have gotten the cake from Yummly.com but they were fresh out. Baby girl  I really appreciate you standing there with those big pretty hazel eyes and saying to Nanna, “It would taste better if you baked it.”  First off Nanna Boo Who there will be more TIME for your days to get things done that you need to get done. Second, I’m so glad and proud I can come over here and talk to you about things that are  happening in my life.  Third, Nanna Boo Who, thank you for teaching me the Ist, 2nd, and 3rd rule to help organize my thoughts. The greatest gift shared is you accepting me and still being able to communicate with me as if you were my age. 🙂 Nope! Nope! I don’t want to be that age again.

So my Grand-baby is Sweet Sixteen. Girl you are getting old. Step up here and give me a big hug and kiss. What do those little ears and big mind want to learn today. Nanna Boo Who,  what is your spin on the song Wind Beneath My Wings?  I never did like that song. Maybe I got the wrong meaning but that song rub me the wrong way. As women growing up we weren’t taught to dream or nurture the thoughts of our ambitions.  Nanna I thought you was going to say back in the day. No, I like being in the day, with the moment being now, and moving FORWARD.  I really hate those Uncle Lawrence stories. This is a new era and I want to see my granddaughter stand on her own two feet and not be under someones D*** wing. Sorry about that baby girl. That was a slip of the lip. Now when you go home make sure you don’t trip and use that word because your MaMa will flip the script.

There’s no boogeyman in the closet.  You can dream and shoot for becoming the next  female President. You can become Lady Braveheart of Massachusetts like Senator Elizabeth Warren, or First Lady Michelle Obama (Queen Guinevere of 2016) who took her husband place when he leaves office. What a dream!  There are so many doors opening and the struggle has been horrendous for women. Baby-girl it is so many women out there who are Stumping and Trumping the yard with such greatness. Grandma you forgot that I don’t dream. No I didn’t. There is no need to call Iyanla Vanzant to fix your life.  How will I work around imagining my greatness?  The same way we have always worked with your unique abilities. We will point it out, pour on the concrete ideas. It gets even better. We will StumbleUpon new ideas, FaceBook it to your friends. I don’t have many friends. It is a new day of communication and being on the Grid will help.  If you are not comfortable, there is a way to monitor any strange comment by blocking or de-friending.  Also clean out your profile. Tweet out your ideas or face-off with SnapChap. We can build the biggest collage of your dreams on PinInterest and InStagram.  Apple laid the groundwork for a new way of educating children/adults.  You know Nanna Boo Who got your back. I must continue to keep up so I can leave the doors of communication open. Nanna Boo Who thank you for continuing to learn and grow with me. I see your white hair but I can’t ever see you growing old. That is what modern technology does for the soul.

Baby girl we have a contender who thinks he is Julius Caesar. We all know how that history lesson ended. Someone needs to Tweet to this guy and tell him he is not the dressing on the salad.  Mr. Cesspool of Intentional Behaviors is straight up berserk for ever thinking he can become the President of the United States. This is his dream but for his constituents it is a real nightmare.  He Tweets all the time. Just think of all the people under the wing of this guy. Concretely he would rule all, incarcerate common sense, banish dreams and reasonable ideas forever. Maybe I got the song Wind Beneath My Wings Wrong. For you on your birthday I always want you to DREAM the way we have taught you using all the tools available to help you become successful. Grandma never wants you to become the backup generator for another person dreams.  Grandma don’t play that energize bunny Sh**. You are allowed to have and be motivated by your own dreams concretely or not.  Society tend to crush dreams and want people to settle for mediocre things. As long as you have breath in your body you will play more than one role in life.  Speaking of Wings, Nanna Boo Who did throw down your favorite dish. Guess! By the way I did not forget the Louisiana Hotsauce. Happy Birthday Baby Girl!

 

 

 

Proceed To Where And Safeguard Who__Why?

School has started already!  Back to school night has passed in some areas.  Did you pick up your package?  Let me see it. This package looks a lot thinner than the package you received last year. Man! Education has been gutted .  All the schools closing are unbelievable.  I don’t see it. What are you looking for?   I am looking for Your Procedural Safeguards for Children and Parents. I tell you what, if they did not give you a booklet you can go on-line and look it up. Every state has their own Procedural Safeguard Manuel. The laws vary from state to state.  Since we are in Missouri you can visit dese.mo.gov/site and it should come up.  Google has a PDF on Special Education Rules and Regulations. Also visit the PDF Notice of Procedural Esc.18.net. You did say you were moving to Texas in 2 years.  Google’s PDF A Guide to the Admission Review, and Dismissal Process is what you need to look up.

It is Back To Life. Back to Reality. SOUL II SOUL put it out there. However do you want it. The process starts here and now.  Life begins and school never ends but the lives of our children, family, and friends are being shorten.  Are you ready to start advocating?  Parents who are coming into the  school  system for the first time the bottom line is if you can get on FACEBOOK/TWITTER and talk about your drawers, I’m quite sure it is TIME for you to learn about educational laws. For all you parents who has taken a fancy to alcohol, drugs, casinos, and clubs, it is TIME to straighten up, get up off your butts, your child’s education cannot be snubbed. For the parents who struggled with the educational system, your child’s behavior, getting an INDEPENDENT EVALUATION, or cannot decide whether to return your child to his/her public school placement, check this out. To help kick-start yah!  Visit http://www.wrightslaw.com. Parents please read and learn more.

Proceed To Where:

What direction are we headed.

I’m willing to push it and don’t you never forget it.

Eyes on the prize on the path to upward mobility.

Education northward bound balances mental stability.

Safeguard Who:

Parents speak out, support, and advocate for you child.

Be there for the young adults so they won’t run buck wild.

Did you think this was only for the young and not for me and you.

When I’m talking about advocating, INCLUSION is the key.

This is a SHOUT OUT to every one who rocks this nation.

Be for real, keep it real this is for the next generation.

Why:

We don’t get a chance to pick and choose the ones we will lose.

Keep the bodies out of the morgue. I pray you will end up in school.

Every child’s program cannot be based solely on academics.

Addressing a child’s program of social/emotional is absolutely no gimmick.

School was not their pick and choosing. So it rubbed off like manure.

Dreams of becoming an entrepreneur should not be flushed down the sewer.

ICONS, SUPERSTARS, larger than LIFE was the pick of the day.

Please do not let MENTAL ILLNESS, GUN VIOLENCE, and SUICIDE  (without intervention) lead the way.

Procedural Safeguards are for every life that walks this earth. It runs the scope of Robin Williams wittiness. A phenomenal actor and comedian whose mental processing and right brain creativity spun on an axle at light speed. When Robin would speak he would finish the next 5 thoughts ahead and the words would fly off his lips.  Robins thoughts were straight shots and there wasn’t any rerouting of his information. There was a clean flow of non-stop major transformation.  He hit the target every time bringing his fans, friends, and family so much joy and  laughter.  Robin Williams had so much to give and so much to say.  In this life we must learn to  pace oneself and not give too much or all of oneself away.  To the family of Robin Williams I will Proceed to pray and may God continuing to Safeguard your family and children. Why? Robin Williams extraordinary mind is the beginning of his swan song to mentor and open a door for the next generation.

Giving RECOGNITION to the questions of What Hurts Enough?  It is this day in TIME when you will reflect back on the ICON and the dash to the distance was short. The race that was run was of a sprint and not of a marathon. Many candles were blown out but not by the wind.  MENTAL ILLNESS, GUN VIOLENCE, and SUICIDE without early DETECTION and INTERVENTION swept away our family, friends, and next of kin. It is the hurt when you look down upon your love one and you asks yourself the question, WHY LORD?  Where did it all go wrong? Was there any other Safeguard? How do I Proceed here on bending knees? Everything is at stake. The moment I closed my eyes I could hear WHITNEY HOUSTON sing I Was Not Built To Break. You realize the ones who have gone before you must be given the respect and credit that is due. It will be hard to forge ahead and try to Safeguard Who.

Procedural Safeguards was given to protect a nation that no longer wants to go to war. It is the uncharted territories of Where to Proceed and not to travel a bridge too far.  I could hear the word of INCLUSIVENESS stretching across many seas and many shores. Why should assistant be given? A true leader tries before he closes and barricade the rest of the doors. In his mildest tone before his voice elevates, the tiger will roar. It was meant to extend a hand and Safeguard for Who.  A country who needs to arm themselves, fight their battles, and make decision that are long overdue.

Procedural Safeguards are the Blueprint for the loss of our great educators, Icons, Singers, Actors, Politicians, Sports Industry who lost their way through the use of substance abuse, MENTAL ILLNESS, GUN VIOLENCE, and SUICIDE. Procedural Safeguards lay the groundwork for requesting and seeking help for diagnostic assessments and intervention. It is not just for children in school but any person who needs help. It is Time for us to learn the process, understand the process, and not let due process slip away. It is your right to Proceed ahead, continue to advocate, and fight for your life today.

We must never forget to Give Recognition to the UNRECOGNIZABLE. It was the life of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Hadiya Pendleton, Jordan Davis, Renisha McBride, Alfred Wright, and so many lives that were taken and never got the opportunity to go the distance. The children’s lives of Sandy Hook ran a very short distance. It was shorter than a sprint. All the babies killed by GUN VIOLENCE left bloodstains of great resentment. The lost and pain will always remain. We have heard the cries of Enough is Enough. To the world I say a working strategy of getting tough will serve the purpose of producing positive results.

Once again I’m standing in the stone garden.  Walking through the garden I notice a huge monument. As I approach the marble grey monument I notice the carving of little babies holding stone petals in their hands. My hands began to tremble as my body descended toward the earth. As I positioned my body against the stone I dug my fist into the dirt.  A cool breeze ran across my face. My body felt listless. The great stone was the only support my body had. Any person rolling into the stone garden probably would have thought I had passed out.  Then it happened. I began to look at the details on the stone. In the upper right hand corner I notice the carvings of olive branches.  As I placed my hands on the stone there were grooves with open slits carved in. Wow!  This was a piece of art. There it was. The words on the stone:

In the darkest hours on the coldest nights you have not forsaken me.

From the blistering sun to the earliest of dawn.

My mind and spirit are now free.

To the balmy nights stars shining bright.

Our children are not alone.

You protected us, safeguard with trust, We have arrived at our new home.

Proceed On.

I assumed the mother’s name and her three children were listed on the stone.  It took me a minute to gather myself. As I rose to brush the dirt off of my pants I notice deep etchings in the stone. It read it is not your fault.  I didn’t want my mind questioning the words on the stone.  I knew it was Time for me to proceed on. My legs felt so wobbly and cramped. Upon leaving the stone garden I notice the dash to the distance was short. I did not see many marathon runners. Many images begin to flash through my mind as I could hear Michael Jackson voice singing GONE TO SOON. I stopped for one moment to catch my breath and when I looked back over my shoulder it was if I could see Michael with his pantomime pose extending his hands and tilting his hat singing, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I know Where to Proceed, I understand Who to Safeguard, I realize Why.

Unforgettable__The List

It felt as though I was humming to the tune of Nat King Cole’s Unforgettable. Was it Lee Major who played in the FALL GUY? If you are not sure going forward in making a decision don’t forget to reach into your pockets and pull out the TRUSTED ADULT. Your business should be Comfort Zone LLC so you can sing Alicia Keys, Diary/Secrets. We will hope for the best and may your secrets fall into the hands of someone you can truly say, “Your Secrets Are Safe With Me.” It won’t be Chris Christie. Baby! Are you about to be fired? Please tell me Chris Christie was not trying to sing Nappy Roots song, Po Folks. You know the part where he states he has lived in Jersey and he will croak in Jersey bit. Right! Right! Now he is beginning to understand Tupac, All Eyes On You. BUSTED! The Hawk, The Almighty Hawk, Mr. Wind has caught your back on the way out the door. Lou Rawls knew what he was talking about when he song Dead End Street. I guess being a contender for the Presidency looked quite appealing. The Governor might need to change course with his dream. If the General name keeps popping up, SAMSON and DELILAH (Bridget Kelly) will star in their next movie. You can call it Rockin’ With The Rockerfellows__ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT for the real Land Slide. Chris Christie is not a Grand Guardian. He guards his pockets only.

Who can be considered a Grand Guardian? It could be your momma, your daddy, brother, sister, close friend, relative, minister, an attorney, a person you TRUST with your story. The Media has become quite an effective choice and has become very popular. Hell! It sounds like SUPERFLY. Some people have had success with Twitter. A wonderful example is the young lady who Tweeted out 3 Rochester Teens standing on the sidewalk waiting for the bus who were about to get arrested for blocking traffic. Happy! Happy! Happy! These young BROTHERS coach was their Grand Guardian. Lawrence O’Donnell threw down on this exclusive story ARRESTED ROCHESTER TEENS SPEAKS OUT. You go Lawrence O’! This is what I call true Arrested Development. I like their songs too. Go ahead Mr. Wendal. Pay attentions because we are beginning to see some new strategies to save ones A…

Whew! I’m so glad these three young Brothers were not Andy Asperger, Nathan NLD, and Tommy Tourette Syndrome. The Flip Side Of The Chart will not stand a chance. These Brothers wouldn’t be Rockin’ with the Rockerfellows. They aren’t the affluent. Who will get the shaft? The middleman has been cut. Mental Institutions are not much of an option. Moving Forward with modern technology and the Winans forecasting Teddy Riley’s Time To Make That Change it is definitely a New Jack Swing. Bottom line just make sure you are not standing in front of the Grand Jury. This is not to be confused with your Grand Guardian. Well, depending on the verdict. If it rides in your favor, Hallelujah! Can I Get An Amen Or Not?

Steve Kornacki was pushing the interrogation factor. Keep asking question until you get the right answers. If you are not sure about the answer find your Grand Guardian, fact checker, or the most reliable News Media that is BUSTING LOOSE with THE TRUTH and throwing down like Chuck Brown and the Soul Searchers. Google It! Bing It! SING Ya-HOOO-ooo! Check this out. When my girl was a guest on Up with Steve Kornacki you notice Dawn Zimmer, the mayor of Hoboken had her Alicia Keys Diary/Secrets. I just want all my Brothers and Sister over on the Flip Side Of The Chart to remember this precious strategy. If you struggle with writing, the keyboard on the computer may give those fingers some ease. If you can’t put your thoughts on paper get a tape recorder. Go to your FACEBOOK wall where you can share or make it public or private. For those of you who can get to the point in 140 words or less and is just D.. short-winded, Twitter is for you. For those of you who has more to say, Do Your Thang on FACEBOOK. Don’t throw your conversation E-Mails away. Think of it this way. E stands for Evidence and it might save your A… one day or you may get burned depending on what is in the E-mail. Thank GOD for modern technology and what it has brought to our ever-changing world. Change is the fuel in which a mule refuses to move forward. The mule is cool with the acceptance of stubbornness. Jack-Ass!

Where is that List? Unbelievable! It was right here all the Time. Check Bobby D out. Man! Look at the sweatshirt Bobby D wore to school. Back in the day we called it a cheat sheet. Your A… was out partying instead of studying for the test. The key to scoring on the test was knowing where to position yourself if you’re going to get the majority of the right answers. The person on the opposite end of the spectrum know it is a cheat sheet. Intentional behavior is about to make its move. The person on the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART doesn’t realize it is a cheat sheet. Interrogation TIME! Bobby D is pissed because my Boi on the Flip Side is asking all these question and drawing attention to Bobby D shirt. What! So the teacher wants to get her test on. Hold Up! Hold Up! She has to find out why the commotion is in motion. As she approaches Bobby D the answer just jumps out. Bobby D thinks my Boi has snitched. Bobby D is removed from the classroom. Here we go with the “Meet me at 3:30 your A.. is mind.” WHOA! Mr. Intentional Behavior is not going to pass the test either because he was out with Bobby D and he invented the shirt. Did we make any friends today? On top of it all somebody is about to get thrashed.

A person who can’t focus and trouble with concept formation can hang it up. Do you know how hard it is for some people to put their ideas in a group. Comparing and contrasting is horrible. Did you actually think knowing what is relevant and irrelevant was going to happen right this minute. No! It will take TIME, patient, and a person who is willing to be the grownup in the room to say they understand. Are you willing to teach and teach and teach? On the Flip Side Of The Chart there are so many people who are so willing to learn. Stop being HATERS and frustrating the great minds who processes information differently. It must be understood on the Flip Side Of The Chart Thomas Edison light bulb will take a minute to be turned on. When it comes on the glow is Awesome! We will not roll out the fight on Christopher Columbus and my BOI Lief Erikson. Discovery just ain’t our thang. It is cool to give credit where credit is due. We just need concrete information and the TRUTH to be square. Do not take the ZOO-ZOOs and WHAMS-WHAMS away. You are going to piss the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART off. I hope you don’t think making an example out of people you fail to teach are going to be receptive to punishment. Come on! Take responsibility. You don’t think when Bob McDonnell, formal governor of Virginia got his ZOO-ZOOs and WHAM-WHAMs taken away he wasn’t pissed. INTENTIONAL! MHP, the price of chicken has gone up.

Unforgettable! Please tell me when you hear about NLD Syndrome you will be able to hold a decent conversation on the topic. If you know anyone who appears to be unique treat the person with dignity and respect. Your lightbulb might be screwed in too tight. Loosen up and adjust. Help create an inclusive environment for a BROTHER or a SISTER. Just a friendly reminder to let your A.. know a BROTHER and SISTER doesn’t means BLACK FOLKS ONLY (BFO). OKAY!

NLD Syndrome called Nonverbal Learning Disability is a developmental disability in which the individual demonstrates a mature vocabulary, rote memory skills, an excellent reading abilities. Who does this look like to you on the opposite end of the spectrum? Mr. so-called Normal! Hmmm! Children/Adults have difficulty interacting with others (same age peers or not), transitioning to new settings, working in different environments (whether or not it is at school or on the job), WHEREVER under the UMBRELLA, UMBRELLA, UMBRELLA… Stop it RHIANA! Working with anyone and anything NEW can cause a major BOO BOO in the world of NLD. It’s all good on the opposite end of the spectrum the GOP, Republicans, and Tea Partiers was totally out of touch and sync. NLD Syndrome Traded Places and it was not with Eddie Murphy. On the Flip Side Of The Chart it is called Work With Me Program. From where I’m sitting, WHOOP! WHOOP NLD Syndrome we are rooting for you. Sure NLD has problems with writing and fine motor skills. So did Rand Paul, Senator from Kentucky. This dude from the opposite end of the spectrums had problems with his writing skills too. Hell, he decided to steal someone else’s work. What was wrong with his fingers? Right! Right!

NLDers has exemplary reading skills. So did Ted Cruz, Senator from Texas, with his Green Eggs and Ham BS. He totally misinterpreted the D.. story. People diagnosed with NLD Syndrome want to get it right. What can we say for this sucker IDIOT-OLOGY Ted Cruz? What did he achieve? Abstract concepts need to be explained in detail as the individual with NLD has a difficult TIME with understanding metaphors, emotional nuances, multiple levels of meaning and relationships issues. On the opposite end of the spectrum The Golden Globe Pussy Willow Award goes to Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas, for his libido statement. Go Head Pimp Daddy Sugar! The second runner-up on the opposite end of the spectrum is State Senator Richard Black of Virginia for his belief that marital rape should not be a crime. This is not Joe Black’s brother and you definitely do not wish to meet him. You can find this article at Salon. By the way, Richard is living up to his name. Dick! Our third runner-up on the opposite in the spectrum is Foster Friess, Mr. Business Man Of The Year, with his aspirin still between his legs in his day and his mind only. There are so many HATERS on the opposite end of the spectrum. NLDers are not HATERS. What comes out their mouth is tough but the bottom-line is they can be redirected because they want to get it right. The HATERS on the opposite end of the spectra is caught in a Time Warp, Intent to do harm, love to fail, and do not wish to move FORWARD. Just give NLDers a description of abstract concepts. Make it simple and be patient. KISS 🙂 NLDers do not wish to fail and struggle with moving forward. It is a BIG D… difference.

1) NLDer have motor impairments causing difficulty in tasks that require dexterity, manipulations of small objects, and coordinated handling tasks such as writing, typing, buttoning buttons.

2) Attentional deficits causes people diagnosed with NLD Syndrome to have difficulty in coping with over-stimulating or distracting environments and requiring him/her to have limited distractions and assistance in focusing himself/herself.

Mayor Rob Ford, mayor of Toronto, Ontario Canada, demonstrated exactly what can happen to an NLDer on a regular day without the recreational drugs and booze. Strictly meaning bumping into people, accidentally mowing a person down and running head on into an object. Rob is a Space Invader and just didn’t know what to do with his big voluptuous body. Poster Baby Justin Beaver is not too far behind. Did you know Ted Cruz, Justin Bieber, and Rob Ford all came from Canada. Should it really mean anything? See, that is how stereotyping gets started. Cut the Sh.. out.

3) Performing multiple task simultaneously can possible Blow The Roof Off The Mother for NLDers. One thing at a TIME is good and limit the information you give on the task. Multiple commands are so counterproductive. On the opposite end of the spectrum this happen many TIMES with the GOP and Kill OBAMACARE. Ask the baby who has potty on himself and need their diaper change right away the response would be___SEE THERE. 😦

4) Organizing material on NLDers watch is the Beatles singing HELP I NEED SOMEBODY. I mean not just anybody. Go get the Brother or Sister some HELP with writing outlines, determining how to sequence/order and prioritize, planning, and transitioning from one idea or aspect of a project to another.

Help me LAWD! On the opposite end of the spectrum my BOI Chris Christie had A Whole Lotta Of Shakin’ Going On. He was not on the stage with Jerry Lee Lewis and The Outlaws. Will he be the next outlaw? Well, maybe he over-planned but he probably didn’t plan on this happening. Steve Kornacki, You Light Up My Life and I am singing George Clinton Flash Light. UP! UP!

5) Visual-Perception/Visual-spatial deficits. How a persons interpret what he/she sees, understanding the boundaries of their environment and the boundaries in a relationship. Do Not Cross The Line. Just explain to the person in the right tone if they are standing to close, if it flies over their head and they don’t get it. We don’t need to get in a shouting match. Be patient if the person is slow on gathering their thoughts. Explain to them information that is personal should not be shared on FACEBOOK. Stay out of the Abstract Zone and pour on the concrete. Please don’t go there with picture this. Do not say can you imagine. The response will be I can’t see a D.. thing. Can you? Just remember in order to put the pieces of the puzzle together get some gorilla glue because BABY you got some communicating to do. This will not take on the format of TWITTER (the 140 words or less). It is not happening. So gear up and get those jaws ready to do some talking. Parents do not get bog down or frustrated. Make it the happy moment TIME. Let your child/adult know you have a certain amount of TIME to spend on conversational skills and afterward you can party All Night Long just like Lionel Richie.

Are you lost Boo? You can’t read the map? Turn left on 68th street. Why are you turning right? Man! I’m in the car with a person who can’t tell their right from their left. It’s cool! I will drive the next TIME. Do not get into a WRESTLE-MANIA argument with an NLDer. Start singing Luther Vandross, Always and Forever. Make it clear it is okay to disagree. It doesn’t make either party right or wrong when it comes to a person’s opinion. How can you fail a survey? Facts are facts and make it clear you ask for their opinion. Say the right word so you can send the right message. To keep the NLDer from becoming frustrated, angry, and having those meltdowns. POINT IT OUT. Smokey Robinson did. I Am So Excited because I get this and I want you to get it too. Become a Pointer Sister or Pointer Brother. Ye-ah! Doctors spend a little more TIME checking out this area. Soooo I thought I would give it a lick-er-ty split. There is no one test to determine NLD SYNDROME. To all the parents out there, Heads Up! When Baby girl or Baby Boi can’t tie his/her shoe, ride a bike, trips and falls and nothing is in the way, don’t want to play with those LEGOS, takes forever to write, don’t seem to understand you are mom or dad and appears they are talking Sh.. to you, HOLD THE FORT DOWN. Beating a child is not the answer. The KEY is EDUCATION, DEDICATION, and making MEDICATION the last recourse to helping your child understand and cope with his Behaviors. Develop a plan not an A.. whipping.

Drawing complex figures, and trying to understand higher levels of math can be hard (dyscalculia). On the opposite end of the spectrum Paul Ryan gets the Award for Dyscalculia and his Forcible Rape statement. Let someone with NLD Syndrome make any of these scuzzy remarks and they will be up for grabs on all types of harassment or sexual harassment charges. To my NLDers don’t get frustrated. Listen to Whitney Houston and CeCe Winans, Count On Me and drink some hot tea. Feel better now. It is such a shame when the blame is place on NLDers and other exceptionalities who are born with neurological behaviors. NLDers are not emotionally disturbed and should not be ostracized, criticized, isolated, nor punished for their UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS. Make sure everyone involved in Operation Road Hog gets punished. INTENTIONAL BEHAVIOR!

6) Social Miscueing is where we need a real INTERPRETER. Interpreting the body languages is the monkey wrench found in your lunch bucket. Where is the lunch? Guess what? You are the lunch. NLDers get eaten alive because they cannot discern nonverbal cues. When you hear a person say they have a friend who doesn’t know where to start or end a conversation look out. If the conversation appeared to not make sense and was not simple or pragmatic I hope you are aware that you might be talking to Sarah Palin from the opposite end of the spectrum. She is the queen of Com-boo-very and Louie Gohmert, U.S. Representative from Texas, is the King of BS. NLders are winning the battle of Sanity from the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART.

So what if you have trouble recognizing faces, taking people to mean what they say, you Get Jiggy Wit It and the other person feel insulted. I’m quite sure Will Smith, from the opposite end of the spectrum had to Get Jiggy Wit It when people were all up in his business about his marriage and trying to drink his Kool-Aid. Sure you are going to have social blunders. The opposite end of the spectrum say gaffe. It was an error off the lips either way. Who will get punished? Right! Right! You guess it. It wasn’t because you are the Social Butterfly in your community or the Affluent one. As far as TRUSTING people and being NAIVE the opposite end of the spectrum racked up some points and ran away with the ball. Hey! They re-elected CHRIS CHRISTIE. I’m just saying!

7) It is TIME to take off the “Black and White” Tuxedo and break it down to the grey sweat suit. Grey yourself up so you can become flexible instead of having rigid ideas. Are you ready? Be like Guy and Let’s Chill.

Remember if you ever get called in the office on your job and the people are saying they just want FEEDBACK and it is not a VERBAL or a COACHING wait for the
shoe to drop. As you get older you have a tendency to forget. Sooo on January 25th approximately around 2:15-2:30 am, 2014 I just wanted to remind myself I was being held accountable for an ineffective job with little to no resources to get the job done. Okay! Remember keep your diary, tape, and keyboard ready. E for Evidence. Unforgettable that’s what you are.

Fighting On The Assessment__NLD Final Frontier

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.

Receptionist:

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.

Smokelbg:

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.

Receptionist:

Okay, Smoke 1 lb or Smokel Bug the doctors are waiting for you.

Smokelbg:

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.

Receptionist:

I am neither one.  It was just an error on my part.

Smokelbg:

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)?

Receptionist:

Hey, I made a mistake. I do not make mistakes very often. Dr. Chopra and Dr. Drew will see you now.

Smokelbg:

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.

Dr. Chopra:

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.

Dr. Drew:

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?

Smokelbg:

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)

Dr. Chopra:

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.

Dr. Drew:

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.

Dr.Chopra:

I learned that dance step in my country, New Delhi, India. Okay, what is the next step.

Smokelbg:

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.

Dr. Drew:

I like me some Marvin Gaye. Go Ahead, Go Ahead.

Smokelbg:

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.

INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS:

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.

UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS

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.

INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS:

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.

Dr. Chopra:

Go ahead Smokelbg. Why Prince? I do not understand.

Smokelbg:

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.

Dr. Drew:

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.

Smokelbg:

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.

UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS

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.

INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS:

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! Fighting the Fight by Proxy. Don’t let them wine you up. Don’t let people light your fuse.

3.) As far as friendships and relationships, they choose to unfriend you at the drop of a dime and manipulate behaviors of others. Let them fight their own fight and don’t let them pull you into their fight. What you need to understand there are many people who appear very likable but these are the Rump-Shakers who will get other people involved to do all the dirty work and never have a blemish on their record. Who are the real Scum Bags?

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 A Supreme Court Justice bent on closing the gap so one can think the INTENTIONAL Behaviors are now the New Norm.

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.

ADVISORY ALERT:

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.
