Unusual therapy

1. Laura Lémerveil

Daring, creating, discovering, surprising and innovating, here are verbs that Laura Lémerveil conjugates daily. They tie its entire approach to its clientele, its volunteers, its employees and its partners. They also guide its development and are at the heart of all the services offered to children with multiple disabilities.

2. a little description

Laura Lémerveil is a foundation that helps kids suffering with physical and mental disabilities. Basically they organize activities that helps the kids develop their senses. They adapt any activités to any type of needs. Some kids are in weelchairs, some need help walking, some can run on their own. Some kids can speak perfectly, some of them use sign language, some of them don't speak or communicante in any way at all.

So I'm lucky that I'm not one of those kids. I have my full senses working perfectly fine. Thought my mental health is very low. I have a pretty bad case of borderline personnality disorder. Long story short, my school, camp and family basically hate me because of it. So as you probably understand its very hard for me to feel accepted with all my different mood swings.

4. My experience

I found out about this place because of a community service presentation évent at my school. I spotted the kiosque and went to it, where they explained to me that it was a foundation helping people of 0-26 years old with physical and intellectual disabilities. I signes up because I had some hours to complete for my school's community service program. I thought it would be fun but I didn't think much of it. I went there for my foirât day, and I absolutely loved it. I was with a boy in a weelchair who communicated in sign language. I loved communicating with him and pushing him around. He seemed so happy. after that I came back at least 10 more times and every time, I absolutely loved it. This fopundation has helped me know what career I now want to do in life: I want to be a special needs teacher. There is one little boy there I had a special bond with, he was about 13 and he hated sounds and music. We played trucks and he was so smiley, he gave me a bug at the end of the day and to this day my heart mets whenever I think about him. Laura Lémerveil is an escape for me

5. The therapy

Laura Lémerveil is the only place I feel totally accepted. I go there whenever I can as a volunteer, and I do a pretty good job. I've developped a passion of working with disabled kids, and those kids are honestly my reason to live. Its amazing how I get kicked out of places because of my BPD but this place loves me just as I am even if I'm one of the youngest, I'm definitly one of their favourite volunteers because I help them so much. One of the employees asked me if I still went as volunteer, since it didn't make sense of a 15 year old giving up so many of her weekends to help, and I said no, I comme hère because I love it.
