I started The James Cerebral Palsy Foundation to enhance the quality of those living with different disabilities, and this includes disabled veterans from any war (homeless or not) by providing resources, education, and advocacy services. I am a seasoned vet in public speaking and human intelligence. I have lived my entire life with Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy and as a person with a disability, I have had to learn how to fight my way through life. I do not believe that Christ ever intended us to be used as a doormat for people to walk all over.
I have had over 25 surgeries all over his body due to Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy. My surgeries include but are not limited to Brain Surgery, Back Surgery, and Right Arm Surgery just to name a few. While I understand that the government in most cases requires a degree, I also believe that life experience outweighs any degree that could be given. I have experience interpreting in American Sign Language (ASL) with the use of only one hand (Uncertified).
The format of this course will consist of an approximately 20 minute lecture followed by a Q&A session lasting approximately 5 minutes. Although we model the new EFC format after collegiate courses, we respectfully ask all in attendance to refrain from asking questions during the lecture portion so as to give the speaker(s) ample time to get through the material.
Refreshments are generously provided each week by Arlene Arreola. Donations to help cover the costs are accepted. Additional refreshments will be available for purchase downstairs at the Skyline Café after class. We ask that you exercise good stewardship and help us keep the facility in good order by cleaning up after yourself.
Once the class is officially dismissed, we encourage ongoing information exchange and networking. If you have any questions that did not get answered in class, please email them to us and we’ll either incorporate the responses into a future session or email you back directly.
