The photos above are a handful taken from Assistive Technology Partners' AbleGames 2009 held on August the 29th. In the words of Ian Dury - "Das ist gut! C'est fantastique!". You'll soak up so much by browsing the photos and reading some of the news reports from the likes of Mile High News and The University of Colorado and Denver.
Personally I couldn't stop grinning. So much joy on show from something that most kids take for granted. Frankly most disabled kids should be taking this sort of fun for granted too. There's still a long way to go but the road exists.
Chuffed doesn't cover it when Gavin Philips who contributed so much to this event e-mailed me this just before the event: "Thanks a million for running Oneswitch and your blog, Barrie. The majority of the games and adaptations that we will be using for this event came directly from you". Well have to say this event has given me back plenty of inspiration to keep going. Thank you!
