Today is the first official of day of my PhD. The topic it is: An investigate into the experience of sexuality and intimacy of people with Cerebral Palsy who rely AAC to communicate. It has been a long time coming since the first time I met Dr. John Hickman at the launch of his autobiography called "One Step at a Time" and the notion of someday me doing a PhD, which I discussed in a keynote I delivered at the Pathway11 Conference in Adelaide last year.
Dr. Vicki Crowley, my primary supervisor, and I have been working together over the past year to get to this point. I have been working on building a good support network and I am honored to have high quality people in my support team.
I know that there is going to be high mountain tops as well as deep dark valleys in this epic journey through many fields of knowledge, experience and the unknown...... Watch out fieldmice?
