Great videos of CECWA - Conductive Education Centre of WA

I just wanted to share with lightnur readers these two videos that I took from the youtube cecwa1 profile about Conductive Education in Western Australia. These videos are also featured in the CECWA website. Please visit the website and learn about CE and you can always support generously through it's link here.

The first video is a Conductive Education in WA - every kid can: a visual journey

A moving picture journey of children with motor/physical disabilities and assoiated needs engaged in Conductive Education in a school setting: footage from families associated with Conductive Education Centre of Western Australia (CECWA) -

Masha Allah, a fantastic video of Mujhee and her awesome friends. Please pay special attentions at 0.20, 1.02, 1.16 and 1.22 for Mujhee. =)

The second video I would like to share with you is About CE in WA, CECWA and family stories - interviewed

Conductive Education Centre of Western Australia (CECWA) - history of Conductive Education Centre in WA; the CE education approach explained by teacher conductor; and parents share family stories, their perspective, and why CE is important to their child.

See if you can recognise Mujhee in the second video.

I am telling you both these videos especially the first one give me hope for the oppurtunity that Mujhee gets from CE. First of all, I thank you Allah for making CE exist in WA so that Mujhee can attend it's fantastic program. I thank Allah for giving Mujhee a special program that can help her to develop her motor skills.

I thank Allah for sending us great people to care and cherish my girl, and to work with their love. Thank you very much to all staff at Carson Street for their compassion. I only hope I can thank you enough. It's people like you who make a difference in this world! Keep up the good work!

It makes me shed tears, looking at Mujhee and her other special friends in these videos. All of them have worked really hard just to do simple things in life, like sitting, standing, rolling and communicating, that we didn't appreciate until we lose one. Subhana Allah, may Allah open our eyes to His bounties and be grateful for what He bestows on us.

Insha Allah, I hope you enjoy it. And do leave comment.

ENT appointment and shedule for tonsils surgery.

It was Eid last Friday, the muslims celebration after a month of Ramadan fasting. In the morning Mujhee, her sisters her father and me got into our new Eid outfits and ready for Eid prayer. It is the tradition of our beloved prophet to pray Eid in an open space, so we have our Eid prayer at the Kings Park as always. The prayer follows by the Eid khutbah or Eid sermon.

We reached Kings Park at 8 am, there were a lot of people there already, as the prayer will start at anytime. I dropped Mujhee's father and sisters at a drop off zone, before I parked the car near the Synergy Park. I took Mujhee out while Khai got Hana out off the car. It was a long walk to the prayer area at Saw Ave. On our way there the prayer had already begun.

Along the way there is a path that I can push Mujhee on her wheelchair, but when we reached near the prayer area, it was hard to push through the grass. I stopped a few times to catch my breath. I was hoping there is an accrod parking near by, so I didn't have to walk that far. Sadly there was none.

After the Eid khutbah or Eid Sermon, we met with friends and greet each other with Eid Mubarak. Mujhee gave a big smile to everyone who greet her. She was so happy that morning.

It was not so fun as Mujhee had to go to PMH for ENT appointment after the prayer. Poor thing Mujee's sister and her father have to wait in the car for more than an hour.

It was the same time last year when Mujhee had this appointment but we haven't decided about removing the tonsils. Few days after the appointment we decided to proceed. I contacted the Cerebral Palsy Liason Officer on our behalf to scheduled the surgery. We were disappointed to hear that we had to wait for the next appointment, which will be in six months.

Six month after that we still didn't get any appointment. Then I asked Mujhee's OT to do a follow up. When she got back, she told us the Mujhee will get her appointment not until September which will be another six months because the doctor was on leave.

The doctor checked Mujhee ears, throat and nose. While he checked he mentioned about her tonsils. I told him that we have decided to do the surgery. He said that he didn't get our message and told us that we should write to him. Anyway, I believed everything happens for a reason, so I hope the delay is for good only. Alhamdulillah he scheduled the surgery for next month. When I wrote this post, we have received the date. Insha Allah it will be on early October.

After the appointment we visited my parents to greet them Eid Mubarak. My parents' dinning table was full of delicious food. There were ketupat, rendang, sambal goreng and sayur lodeh. We ate a lot of food there before we went to my sister's.

Mujhee slept well that night. In fact since Ramadan she has been sleeping very well, alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah! I am so grateful for Ramadan, a month full of mercy and blessing. May Allah accept all our prayer and good deeds, ameen.
