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.

28. My motor skills (3) : the freedom of movement of the visually impaired
Daddy dreams that some day, researchers will think even more about the millions of blind and
visually impaired people around the world (100.000 in Belgium alone - just shows how many
there are holed up at their home!). It would be great if someone came up with a GPS (global positioning system) even more accurate (we're getting there), but most important, developped devices adapted to us :
devices we could talk to, and that would answer us back. A device that would tell us where we are ("you are in gare du Nord" for example)... It would be a revolution for all of us (speaking of which, they say this year is the european year of the handicapped)
