Lou's Diary
A little prince, not quite like the others
  Hello, I am a little boy who only sees right with his heart...
Which doesn't make my parent's daily life any easier. So I'm blind and different (mentally speaking).

Lou the acrobat


Welcome to Lou's blog

This blog was born in french during autumn 2003 and is now progressively being translated in your language.

New articles will therefore appear on a regular basis.


... my apologies to the people who hadn't understood this yet, all articles on this website are created and written by myself (his dad).

Lou is currently unable to do it,, just like he is to this day unable to grasp the concept of a "computer", "internet", or to focus for a long period of time on a conversation. Only time will tell us if we manage to integrate him completely in the world in which he lives.

Therefore all stories, despite relating actual facts, are obviously biased by my interpretation of his behavior. But having known him for over five years, I don't think I'm getting it wrong.

Thank you to the "Roi Baudoin" foundation ( "Parcours hors pistes" ). The new design, hosting and translations were partially made possible by their financial support.
Many thanks to Marco Pappalardo et Laetitia Bouet for the translation.

58. Games (2) and pre-brail

Lou et el braille(2 - continued)

To tell you the whole truth, mommy and daddy are a bit of a pain in the ... Because what I like more than anything else is swinging, laughing, imitating, singing or listening to music and stories. But regularly they force me to "play with my little hands". They tell me it's essential for my future. Whatever. And since the basis of my school curriculum is bringing me to brail, I must learn the notion of six boxes (or six dots) which is the very foundation of the brail language (every letter is a variation of a combination of six points). For that, I must acquire the notion of "up" and "down", after which I can discover that in between the two, there is a "middle".
Then repeat this notion but this time defining a "left" and a "right".
And maybe some day find out that to the left, there is another left and right, and same thing to the right.
Not so easy huh ? I can't tell you how much it annoys me ...

Hello little Lou! It must be difficult for you right now trying to learn brail. But you must keep trying little one. It is very important. And once you begin to understand the concepts of up/down, left/right in brail it will help in other daily activities too! Hope you have a beautiful day!

Hello Lou xoxoxoo. Yes it would be difficult my little friend, I tried to learn "braille" to be more involved in my nephews life, even I found it hard and I am a grown up. I know that it must be a pain with your Mummy and Daddy making you move your little hands and fingers doing something that feels alien to you at the moment, but believe me my friend, once you get the hang of it, it will open up your world a little more. God bless xoxo
