Overcoming An Injury A time I had to overcome adversity in my life was when I became injured during the middle of cheer tryouts. At the time I was very passionate about competitive cheer, and my goal was to make the junior five team. When I got to tryouts everyone was tumbling, stunting and doing the dance routine. My adrenaline was pumping as I went to warm up my tumbling and throw a roundoff, back handspring, layout. I was determined to accomplish this for tryouts and impress my coach, but I was still very nervous. As I was running into the roundoff back handspring, I knew something was bound to go wrong. The next thing I knew I was in the middle of the air and suddenly landed on my knees, with my ankle twisted under me. My face got bright

A Broken Wrist Everyone has a memory that they could remember vividly, whether it be the best day in their life, or a wedding. My memory, involves none of that. Instead, it involves a lot of pain.

Writing is a complex social and cognitive process and requires fine motor coordination. Students with learning disabilities (LD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) struggle with remembering what to write, rules involved in writing, or facts needed for the writing prompt. Students with LD and ADHD require explicit and direct instruction in writing. In Head Start, we use a program called Handwriting without Tears. Handwriting without Tears is a scientifically based program used to teach young children how to form letters using a variety of methods. Many students with LD and ADHD struggle to learn the mechanics of writing, such as capitalization, rules such as I before E except after C, or write about scattered facts they have
I feel a sense of calmness wash over me. My thoughts are peaceful and positive. I am confident and capable. I sleep a deep, healing sleep. I wake in the morning refreshed and renewed.
I started the rough draft for my book, and I knew I had to practice my handwriting. Mrs. Cox thought it would be more authentic and interesting if our books were hand-drawn and hand-written, so I had to make sure that my writing was impeccable (and, preferably, better than every other kid’s who was doing this). I didn’t spend too much time on my art during the rough draft process; I knew I wasn’t an artist, and I wasn’t planning on frustrating myself for hours on end because I couldn’t get the hand or the foot “just
I was eight months old when my chubby little body broke its strongest bone. Being my outgoing, curious self I was beginning to become more and more comfortable with the edges of my parents bed. With my brother not paying attention, I decided to test my knowledge of life. The result of me falling to the ground is captured in photographs, a chubby kid with a groin high blue cast, sitting on top of the same bed.
The Time I Broke My Arm Over the summer of 2009 I was playing with my friend Carissa, at Rohner Park, while we were playing on the monkey bars after a while of jumping off and landing on our arms to many times my bone gave out and i broke it. While screaming in pain my dad tried to ask someone for a cellphone to call my mom to come pick us up and take us to the hospital. When my mom finally arrived my dad rushed me into the car so we could go to the hospital. While we were in the car i told my mom to go faster because the pain was really starting to hurt.
After completing this assignment, I was shocked to see the improvement I made over the last couple weeks. When I first started this assignment, I thought I would have no problem with it. My dominant hand is my left; however, I use my right hand for many activities. After talking to many of my classmates, I think I had an easier time with this assignment, but still at first, I struggled. At the beginning, I had to take one break for each page. Now, I can do an entire page without stopping. My signature is a lot smaller and I can add my own touch to my signature, instead of it just being messy.
I can bet that all of us here have wrestled with death once or twice in our lives. We all know how hard it is to cope with the loss of something that we love. After, people say that they completely understand death and what it means. There are many times in my own life where I think that I have understood death. I was wrong. Sure, I have lost fish and grandparents, but the one that hurt me the most and made me truly understand is when I lost my dog.
Certain factors, such as sequential biases and spatial restrictions, may also increase the probability of mirror-writing in children. Furthermore, childhood mirror-writing might originate from the generalization that almost all actions can be performed in reverse. In regards to adults, involuntary reversed writing is observed after a stroke, when a right-handed person is forced to write using the non-dominant hand. Studies have shown that even adults without any brain damage have demonstrated some reversal when requested to write with their left hand. This supports the motor hypothesis and suggests that mirror-writing results from the inability to modify a right-handed action for left-handed execution. Despite the proposed differences, another hypothesis associates child and adult mirror-writing through the idea of ‘directional apraxia'. Adults may lose the knowledge of direction in writing, which implies that the direction of action is stored separately than the action itself. According to this approach, reverse writing should affect the left hand for rightward scripts and vice
The loss of my younger brother changed my life in ways that I couldn't have imagined at the time of his death, but I was bombarded with so many emotions and undertakings that deeply impaired my thought process.
