Rise, Inc: College experience gives Lori Mayo hope that her dreams really will come true
www.rise.org, 1 Sept 2009 [cached]
For two weeks in July, Lori Mayo had an experience she had only dreamed of having - she was a college student at Temple University in Philadelphia.
"It was hard work!"said Lori Mayo of her two-week ACES course through her Pathfinder communication device.
...
Lori, who has cerebral palsy, has big plans now."I think that I want to go to college because I want to learn more about how to make clothing for people with disabilities."
Service Team Leader Maureen Trost from Rise's Data Ability program in Golden Valley where Lori works as a data entry clerk and Personal Care Assistant Tameko Taylor accompanied Lori.Service Team Leader Maureen Trost from Rise's Data Ability program in Golden Valley where Lori works as a data entry clerk and Personal Care Assistant Tameko Taylor accompanied Lori.
...
During her two weeks at Temple, Lori lived as a student; she stayed in an accessible dorm (she found the bed not nearly as comfortable as hers at home!), ate at the food service and traveled from building to building around the campus.The schedule of classes each day allowed only brief amount of free time to explore the city, and attempts to see the Liberty Bell were not successful due to the traffic and crowds on the downtown sidewalks. (She did later manage to squeeze a little shopping time in, though!)
Maureen noted that Lori quite naturally assumed a leadership role in the class.
...
Lori was an inspiration to many of her classmates."
One of the best side benefits of attending the ACES program at Temple for Lori was meeting nice people from across the United States.Lori made great new friends with whom she can keep in touch via email.
ACES staff will continue to follow up with Lori over the next year to see how she's doing, provide instructional sessions and ongoing technical supports, and put together a recommendation report.Already, Maureen and Lori have checked into taking some introductory design classes at Hennepin Technical College in Brooklyn Park, so Lori's quite excited about the possibilities of being a college student once again.
...
Anita Schermer, a speech language pathologist, specializing in augmentative communication services, has worked with Lori and been a good friend for the past 14 years.
...
Luther and I both spent the two weeks at ACES with Lori -- me as one of the communication instructors, and Luther volunteering and assisting as needed.
...
And I would like to return to ACES next year; hopefully, with Lori as a co-instructor."
Lori was selected to design the T-shirt and develop the slogan for the course: Learning, Communicating Together, ACES 2006.Following the completion of the program, Lori graduated in formal ceremony, complete with cap and gown.Along with her fellow graduates, she wrote and gave a two-minute speech using her Pathfinder.The closing ceremony was powerful and empowering as each participant shared their experiences at ACES and their dreams for the future.Here is what Lori said in her graduation speech:
"I am so-o-o-o-o-o happy!My name is Lori Mayo.
