Brain Camp

Jace at Brain Camp

Note: Mom and I got to go to Brain Camp at Muhlenberg College in July 2018. Here is what I wrote for my poster.

HOW I THINK

My brain works very differently than yours. More of my thoughts are images. This makes it possible to read really fast. I’m able to read a page in a minute. But it means I don’t hear anything in my head. I can’t talk to myself to encourage myself. I go through the steps as pictures. Music makes me so happy because I’m able to sing in my head. My memory helps with this.

MY MEMORY

My memory is amazing. My memories go back to when I was born and manage to cover all my life. Many memories are of hating how people helped me. Many times my mom would use all these cards to teach me words I already knew. I learned language just like anyone else but my body made it impossible for me to let people know.

MY BODY

I’m really smart but my body is dumb. This is why I’m a believer in you being your brain. My body misses what my brain tells it all the time. My movements are off sometimes and I’ll point to the wrong thing or mess up another way. Mostly I need to monitor my body. It’s not giving me help with how I make sense of the world.

HOW I TALK

Maybe the worst thing my body does is talk. It just can’t get the words out. They are in my brain as text but not sound and get stuck. When a word does get through, I’m so happy. I’m going to figure out how to change that text into sound. Brain machines are getting better, so I’m hopeful!
