    Hi Rose,

    Yeah it’s too bad about Speechless. There were a few scenes that worked wonderfully but the good scenes were drowned out due to a bad logic in the show universe and bad subplots and...

    Hi Jul,

    Thanks again for your comments!

    Exactly! I’v been to college and they are required to provide testing and some classroom accommodation but not a PCA. The closest I have seen to a PCA...

    Hi Jul,

    Thanks for posting your thoughts! I agree NYU doesn’t make any sense at all academically for JJ. Your ideas for a spin off/continuation are good. Maya as a para would be great! If they...

    I just recently discovered disabled people can have aids in college in real life via a service. Look up the story of "Nick Astor". Its a huge pain in the butt to get the aid apparently but not...

    Thanks for the info on transition planning and the documentary. I had never even heard of that documentary. I never had transition planning at all as far as I know. I told my schools and home school...

    Yeah Jul97 on a 2nd watch of that episode being a home schooler myself that is actually quite insulting. Home schooling for me was the exact same as a regular high school situation but from home and...

    Ok I saw the "New Years" and "Dimeo Academy" of season 2. I thought both of these episodes were rather good and I didn't see any really ableist stuff in there but some stuff just defied logic or was...

    Interesting thoughts on “Speechless” from its creators below. Perhaps my reviews were a bit harsh and assuming. Fowler and disabled writers DID have input. Just because I don't relate to the episodes...

    Hi guys, I have been working on my film(s) so I have NOT seen episodes in awhile. This show is unfortunately not as high on my watch list as some others but I haven’t totally given up yet.

    My reviews of Speechless “Club”
    So the talking computer is AAC. Cool! It’s been awhile since I saw an AAC device. I have a feeling JJ ditched the device as a way to give the other actors more...

    I know you didn't. Sorry if I sounded harsh. My bad! Autism from what I have seen is a form of brain damage(though there's some scientific debate on that),and yes like CP it must have multiple...

    Oh darn! I missed the episode. No problem. I'll watch it once the website unlocks the episode then. :) I have spoken to a few people with autism who had their symptoms start before they had shots so...

    I am kind of a special case maybe. I was very premature and was unable to receive any collqustrum from breast feeding as I am adopted. So my colds lasted longer. My family did not buy the pharma...

    Finally had a chance to watch “Sick Day”. Now that I have seen the whole thing I generally like the episode. I see they got the fact that some people with disabilities,specifically people with CP...

    My review of “Hero” . I do like that they bring up disability is expensive. I thought it was interesting how JJ didn’t want to part of an essay about “heros”. Once again they are bringing up...
  21. Hi Jul97, for me I feel the term "special needs"...

    Hi Jul97, for me I feel the term "special needs" is very inaccurate to the true experience of disability. I agree about the planning. That's why I was really surprised by Maya being the spontaneous...

    SPOILERS! My review of The “road trip” episode. I liked this one. I loved JJ’s dancing. I loved how JJ is fully involved in the dancing and vacations. Dylan’s curled hair was hilarious!! It was also...

    Trust me Rose. You are better off skipping "Me Before You". I'm disappointed in "Speechless" as well. Both "Me Before You" and "Speechless" seem like huge missed opportunities but out of the 2 the...

    No need to apologize. I totally get it. I think the point of it was that the house is a wreck and the absurdity of the house being a wreck was intended to make it funny but unless you are a kid...

    I agree. It is very UNfunny. You are right about the house especially since the mom mentioned the paramedics needing to get there in time in another earlier episode. It is worth mentioning as a...
