‘If it ain’t broke …’ now an i/Phone/Pad/Pod/Thing download

If it ain’t broke …’ has been on This Personal Space since May 20th, 2012 and now I am very pleased to announce its availability as an iPhone/iPad download from Ether Books, 12/07/12. A brave decision by Ether – not everyone would take the risk of featuring a story whose main character is a man with Down’s Syndrome, especially one who doesn’t live up to the stereotype of happy, smiley but ultimately helpless dependent.

The app and the download are free. If you felt so inclined, you could take a look and maybe even give it a star or two? Jolly good.

    1. Thank you, I have had some of the best times working with people with Down’s, and some of the most heart-wrenching too.One man, deaf as a post so we yelled sensitive material at each other, grasped that he could keep his memories of his mother in his heart. He showed me what this meant by clasping his hands to his chest, then extending his arms outwards saying, ‘I can have my mum in my heart, and build a rainbow to the future’. I didn’t prompt that and it still gives me goose bumps.

        1. A remarkable man. Another would only talk to me about his problems if I framed them in terms of what Spiderman might think. Someone else suddenly got the idea of past, present, and future (therapy sessions) through past, present, and future episodes of Dr Who. They have been interesting times.

    1. Me weird? Just remember I’ve seen you in short pants and a cap with your ears sticking out – that has to be formative! Ok, we were in gymslips, it’s a fair cop …
      See you in September, maybe?
