workshop or university course exercise: article “Shrewsbury Little Leaguer with autism shines as MVP”

One of the strengths of applying SRV and using the PASSING tool is that it offers a way to carry out a comprehensive analysis, taking into account a variety of relevant issues.

This June 2014 newspaper article could provide the basis for a group exercise for a Social Role Valorization workshop or for a university course assignment. The title of the article is “Shrewsbury Little Leaguer with autism shines as MVP ‘CAMDEN IS A KID WITH A SMILE’.”

The article could be analyzed in terms of many SRV relevant issues, such as societally valued roles, greater access to the good things of life, image and competency enhancement, the culturally valued analogue, heightened vulnerability, the developmental model, personal social integration and valued social/societal participation, role modification, and so on.

    Hi Marc. I would agree that this is a good time to engage in such practical examination of the principles of SRI and the PASSING criteria in particular utilizing modern writings from mainstream and social media. Mainstream writing, though changing, still represents “oldthink” in many ways. Social media represents a more enlightened crowd of writers and thinkers, many of whom probably had classmates from nursery school on who were people with disabilities or other “special needs”. It would also be interesting to examine writings at maybe two other periods in our “evolution” – say, the 1950’s and the 1980’s.

      Great points. If you have any suggestions or examples of current social media examples, or comparison examples from 50s and 80s, please share! Always looking for good discussion points.
