Have you ever wanted to be a part of a published work? Maybe you just need a place to vent or have an interest in teaching others?
The YEAH Council has an opportunity for you- answer questions in the Disability Awareness Slam Book!
What’s a slam book? A slam book contains a list of questions and lots of different answers from many individuals.
Once finished, this book (that focuses on questions about what it’s like to live with a disability of special healthcare need) will be released on Amazon to inform the entire world about what it’s like to love our lives. This means that YOU could be be making the world a better place AND you’ll be a published author!
The more people who help us out, the better!
Check out the questions here and send your answers in by September!
The YEAH Council/New Hampshire Family Voices and Fight HARD are proud to announce Access the Truth: The Real Life of Youth Who Are Differently Abled Or Have Special Healthcare Needs!
Youth with disabilities, rare diseases and special health care needs seem to be often misrepresented in the world at large. Very few people understand exactly what it means to have to put up with these challenges in day to day life so we have decided to put together something called a Slam Book in order to help educate others on what living with these challenges is like from multiple different sources.
A Slam Book is essentially a book of questions that is passed from person to person so that they can record their answers. Slam Books come in many different forms and have been made on many different topics but ours is going to be specifically about living with a Disability, Special Healthcare Need and/or Rare Disease while also combating the trials and tribulations of being a youth between the ages of 14-26. Questions cover a wide range of topics, from med planning to relationship building, from mentally prepping for a surgery to celebrating the positives that come from their challenges.
Any of the offered questions can be skipped for any reason and if the person in question doesn’t feel comfortable taking credit for their answers, they can answer completely anonymously. All of the answers that we gather will be put together in a physical book and then that book will ultimately be distributed online for the world’s education!
If you’re reading this and you’re interested in contributing to the Slam Book, all we need is for you to fill out two simple questions here and we will contact you with more information.
