Title: Family Life


1
Family Life Disability
  • Training for Native American Communities
  • www.spiritlakeconsulting.com
  • Dr.AnnMaria De Mars Dr. Erich Longie
  • Spirit Lake Consulting, Inc.
  • Funding provided through a Research Utilization
    Award, National Institute on Disability and
    Rehabilitation Research

2
Who We Serve
  • Every time I write a new training course, I try
    to keep a picture in my mind of someone for whom
    this could make life better.

3
Family Life Series
  • Designed for Native Americans with disabilities
    and their families
  • Needs and constraints of reservation communities
    were integral to the design
  • Follows a computer-integrated format

4
Reservation-based
  • Limited chance to meet other families in similar
    situations
  • When he was nine months old he was like a newborn
    child yet. And he started having what I didnt
    know at the time was a seizure. Before that I
    never even knew that there were people that were
    born with disabilities like this

5
Reservation-based
  • The nearest university library with extensive
    information on disabilities is about a three- to
    four-hour round trip. That is when there is no
    ice or snow on the roads and no flooding. When
    there is, forget it.

6
Reservation-based
  • Transportation is provided as the reservations
    dont have public transit
  • Lunch and coffee breaks are provided
  • Child care is provided
  • Each parent receives a 50 stipend for attendance
    since very few can afford to take two days off
    work without pay

7
Computer-integrated
  • That mom on the reservation attending class in
    the winter, is smarter than people give her
    credit for. Contrary to what a lot of people
    think, she does know how to use a computer.

8
Computer-integrated
  • Spirit Lake Consulting, Inc. has collected the
    largest sample ever of computer usage of Native
    Americans with disabilities and their families
    who live on Indian reservations
  • About half own a home computer
  • Over one-third access the Internet and email
    every day

9
Family Life Series
  • If you, or someone in your family, has a
    disability, this website will help you from
    beginning to end. It was made for you by members
    of the Spirit Lake Tribe, Three Affiliated
    Tribes and Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa.
  • However, most of what we discuss - children with
    behavior problems, the fears as your adolescent
    wants to be less protected and more independent -
    are experiences and concerns of every family,
    urban or rural, Indian or not.

10
Family Life Series
  • Five training workshops
  • Disability Access An introduction to disability
    and disability services
  • Family Life Disability
  • Young Children Disability
  • Disability in the School Years
  • Adulthood, Disability Aging.

11
Computer-Integrated Instruction A new way to
train people with disabilities, staff and family
members
12
What we do
  • Create slices of the Internet
  • Customized on-site training for
  • People with varying levels of experience with
    computers
  • People who need information on specific types of
    disabilities or age groups

13
Making Slices of the Internet
  • Have you ever read something like this -
  • The project engages in simultaneous top-down and
    bottom-up activities to educate stakeholders and
    demonstrate accessible EIT
  • We select content that is useful and meaningful
    for your needs.

14
Four Training Components
  • Course Modules
  • Virtual Library
  • Commons Area
  • On-site workshops

15
Advantages of Computer-Integrated Training (A
very abbreviated list)
  • Customizable for community needs from our
    archives of several hundred web pages
  • Designed to meet needs of remote communities with
    virtual library and bulletin boards with posts
    from tribal members on web site and CD
  • Includes both on-site training and emailed
    follow-up

16
Family Life Disability http//www.spiritlakecon
sulting.com/
  • Funded by a National Institute of Disability
    Rehabilitation Research
  • U.S. Department Education Grant
  • to Spirit Lake Consulting, Inc.

17
Purpose of Training
  • To help people with disabilities find the
    services they need
  • To give people with disabilities, and their
    families, information they can use
  • To help tribal members with disabilities and
    their families use the Internet and the
    Disability Access CD to find the information they
    need

18
You can use the CD or website to create your own
custom-designed course
  • IMPORTANT POINT !!!

19
Training Design
  • Does not require the user OWN a personal computer
  • Training will take place on the reservation, in a
    computer lab similar to where most public use
    will occur
  • The actual website and CD-ROM will be used in the
    training.

20
Training Design
  • Does not require Internet access (but that would
    be nice)
  • Does not require a CD-ROM drive
  • Does require EITHER Internet access OR a CD-ROM
    drive

21
How to Use the CD
  • Insert the CD
  • Double-click on index.html to open the home
    page.
  • Click on Family Life (on the left side of the
    page) and from the pull-down menu select the
    workshop FAMILY LIFE DISABILITY
  • (Your CD does include all five workshops, and
    much more, but we will do this one for now.)

22
Notes on Design
  • The site is divided into modules. You can select
    the modules useful to your age, disability or
    interests.
  • The website is redundant. That is, a person can
    link to the mental retardation section from the
    introduction or the page on specific
    disabilities.

23
If you dont have a CD
  • Open the web browser (Firefox,Netscape, Explorer
    or whatever you use).
  • Type in the following web address
  • http//www.spiritlakeconsulting.com/DA/
  • (Pay attention to what is in capital letters. It
    needs to look exactly like what is written .)
