Georgia Community Support & Solutions: The Debut!

As of 12:20 PM on December 23, 2009, GCSS has a new blog!

Though this one certainly needs a lot of work in terms of appearance (not to mention entries), as the weeks go by, I’ll make an effort to fill it up.

I’m hoping that this particular location will be more appropriate to our organization than Blogspot was…if there’s more that I can do for it, then I’m open to suggestions, as always!

Today, at the office at least, is unusual, in that most of you aren’t present.  I, however, felt the need to come in, if only to make up for some work I haven’t completed.  Our calendar still needs to be done, and I need to work on my “homework” in the Social Networking department (though some of that can be done at home as well).

In any case, I’m happy to get a fresh start.  Look here for more fascinating text in the near future!

Merry Christmas, and a happy New Year!

About gcsscommunity

My name is Eric Pudalov, and I work as Community Events Coordinator with Georgia Community Support and Solutions, whose mission is to provide creative, life-enriching solutions to people with developmental disabilities and their families. I became interested in this field, however, due to having a disability myself; namely, I had brain surgery in 1996 at age 14, to remove a benign tumor. Following this, I had many difficulties with short-term memory, loss of strength, confusion, and emotional control. Fortunately, at present, I've recovered much of what I'd lost. Despite some setbacks, I graduated high school with honors, and received an academic scholarship to Adelphi Univ., where I earned a BA in Communications. Since then, I've held a number of different jobs and internships, among them a TA position at Sylvan Learning Center, and work as a "Service Leader" with Hands on Atlanta. Since living in GA, I've also been involved with two programs (including GCSS) that serve people with disabilities. My experience has included sharing apartments with adults with autism and other disorders. Though my so-called "limitations" may differ from those of others in the program, these experiences have helped me to realize that people, overall, are capable of much more than we may at first perceive.
