Disability and Girls

Ciao Miss Welby thanks for your comment and suggestion on these blog it has made a big impact on improving these blog more comments are welcomed. Thanks alot.

Hi Orietta and Manuela I really appreciate your comments because they have made me work more for girls and do much reasearch as well.
More Comments are welcomed.
Keep it going!!!!!!


Hallo friends today we are going to focus on how disability do affect girls.
For example Spina bifida and hydrocephalus.

Hydrocephalus means water in the brain and spina bifida is a bag of nerves on the back of a new born baby.
Spinabifida is a result of lack of enough follic acid/folate in the mothers body immediately or the first 28 days after conception.(that's why mothers are required to take follic acid before conceiving)

Girls with SB and HC do encounter many problems because these defects do result to a higher level of disabilty.
For example kids with the defect may need more medical attention:
They may need to go for surgeries more frequently and also they may need more time spent on them.
Some kids with the defect most of the time they may have loose bladders and also they may have problems to control their bowel,in turn this leads to stigma in our society, and even when it comes to their education they may have more problems like dropping out of school due to embarrassment.
The usually face more problems since they may need braces which are costly and due to poverty the kids may end up without special shoes or braces and hence leading to feet infections and later amputation of the feet due to pressure sores.

NB: having SPINA BIFIDA i have experienced these problems.

Hallo Rebecca!

my name is Michael, an Italian living in London. A great friend of mine, Mrs Orietta from Italy, draw my attention to your blog on how can I help generate traffic and attention to it, for I possess experience in building successful blogs, such as mine: http://misswelby.blogspot.com

First thing first, I gave you a link out of sympathy and I wish you the best luck. But this is also the first lesson in generating traffic on a blog: links, links, links (good ones of course). I've been browsing through your blog and you haven't got any link!!! Your authority on Technorati is... Zero :(

That can change very quickly. I will help you generate traffic and awarness on your blog. I will be pushing traffic onto your blog. But you must exchange, swap links with other blogs. People I know, many good people Mrs Orietta knows as well in Italy, will LINK your blog to theirs'. All you have to do is to reciprocate their links and suddenly you'll get the attention you and your cause rightly deserve.

Linking back another blog is easy, I guess you already know how, but should you need any technical help, just let me know.

Ciao, many Italian kisses from London

Hi, everybody. I've also put this blog in the permanent list of links on the right of my blog's home page. The blog http://pacsiamo.splinder.com has done the same.

Dear Rebecca, if you want more comments you should change your blog's settings: now only who has an account on google/blogger can comment.

Bye :-)
