Meet Glenda Watson Hyatt
From her blog page: “Glenda Watson Hyatt shares her experiences living with cerebral palsy to motivate and inspire others to think about how they perceive their own situation and their own world around them. She does all this by typing with only her left thumb!”
I have become Glenda’s number one fan; she inspires me in so many different ways. I consider finding her on Twitter a “God Wink”. Her Twitter bio says: “Specializing in accessibility on the web and in real life.” Recently Glenda bought an iPad which has changed the way she talks in public. Please read her review of the iPad on her blog post that reviews it.
Glenda travels extensively to do consulting, give presentations, attend conventions, and more. I never say “Go Glenda” because I know she has already gone to help others.
Meet Karen Putz
From her blog page: If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m a deaf mom of three deaf and hard of hearing kiddos. The hubby is deaf too. However, we’ve got a cute little Westie who can hear a rabbit breathing a half mile away
On Twitter Karen goes by DeafMom, because as she says that describes her. Karen is a writer, a very good one too. She gives links to her writing on the blog. Karen is a barefooter, she skis barefooted. She writes about that too.
Karen is very involved with communication via her work at ZVRS. They provide Video Relay Service and so much more. Please visit the site for information.
One last personal note about communicating, I am disabled but I sure haven’t stop communicating. I do more and more of it via emails, blogs, twitter, etc. I rarely talk on the phone, which is something that surprises me since I used to be on the phone so much. (Maybe I made too many cold calls)
I always say, I am always just a click away.
