IT GENIUS GIVES SON A VOICE BY KATE PICKLES A PARENT hopes to transform the life of his severely autistic son and thousands of others with a new communication aid he designed. Stephen Lodge, of Rother Croft, Hoyland, spent five years developing the Speaks4me computer technology to give ten-year-old Callum a virtual voice. The computer programme, which works on a hand-held device, allows anyone with speaking difficulties to quickly put sentences together using a drag and drop function. “Talking is a basic function we all take for granted so when you can’t, for whatever reason, it must be so frustrating,” he said. “If somebody has had a stroke then they’re cognitive functions will still be intact but they might not be able to talk. This will give them their voice back. “Callum is ten and still does not speak because of his severe autism and potentially he may never talk. “We can understand him but other people can’t and people can lose patience which is really
frustrating for Callum and for them. “I wanted to design something from the parental perspective, knowing what difficulties parents who have children with disabilities face.” Callum, who attends Greenacre School, had made himself understood by using a hand-made book of pictures and words. But the electronic device has over 2,500 pictures and symbols that can be used to create a multiple-word sentence activated when the speak button is pressed. “It is less childish and a lot more practical than having to carry a book around with him everywhere he goes,” said Stephen. “You can also use it to make sure Callum understands something he is learning by getting him to respond to a question, using it.” The 41-year-old IT consultant has patented the device in the UK and has already had interest from health and education authorities. “I am hoping to have it ready in the next month and can’t wait to give Callum his own. It is an Communicating nicely: Callum Lodge at the computer. exciting time for us.”

Cycle scheme wins top award ITV weather man Jon Mitchell presented an environmental award to the people behind a cycle training scheme for children. Last year 1,000 pupils across 51 schools took part in the week-long Bikeability courses. Bikeability won the community award for its ‘innovative partnership approach’ at the Care4Air air quality awards ceremony. Mary Dyson, of Barnsley Council, one of the partners in the scheme, said: “By getting people out of cars and onto their bikes we are reducing harmful vehicle emissions and getting everyone more healthy.”
Happy feet: Keeping in step on the ‘Cyber Dance’ machine during a ‘Fitness Week’ activities morning is Burton Road Primary’s Keenan Batley.
Wellgate Primary, Mapplewell, was ‘highly commended’ for fitting solar panels to the school, setting up a recycling scheme, and getting 62 per cent of pupils to walk to school. Other Barnsley nominees on the shortlist for the awards were BuggyFit, for encouraging mums and families to walk more, Barnsley Academy, for its biomass heating system and encouraging students to cycle, and Athersley North primary, for setting up a walking to school scheme, recycling all waste and reducing electricity consumption.

Think you can’t quit smoking? That’s what Jonathan thought... Jonathan Rollinson, a 21year-old hairdresser, had doubts about stopping smoking. This is how he began the last 10 smokefree months – one day at a time… I first started smoking in the first teenage years at school. I started smoking because all my friends were smoking. I smoked more from leaving school, as I think being able to smoke made me smoke more. My family didn’t know that I smoked until I was 16, my mum could smell it on me I think from the start. But when I was 16 I told them that I smoked – nothing was said to me as they are smokers themselves. They weren’t impressed or happy that I smoked, but at 16 I could buy my own cigs so there was nothing they could really say. “I found lots of health problems from smoking even at the start, I noticed my breathing wasn’t as good, I felt it definitely held me back, I could tell that I smoked because if I walked a long distance, jogged or ran I could feel that my chest was really tight and it was difficult to breathe. Whenever I got a cold it went straight to my chest and it was worse than it would have been normally.” I quit smoking when I was 20, it will be a year in April. I quit
smoking for health reasons, I joined the gym, stopped smoking and noticed a huge difference. It was also for money reasons that I quit smoking, as I used to smoke over 20 a day so I had to buy 40 a day which was something like over £11.00 a day. I was sick of it! “I’ve been twice to the service for help. The first time I came I just used patches and inhalers it was really good and really helpful, but I didn’t feel it did enough for me and I felt in a bad mood and cranky all the time. The second time I came back another medication was recommended to me and within a few weeks, after the week with smoking I had a couple of draws and then I just stopped, as the smoking made me feel sick.” Since I stopped smoking my fitness has improved, I feel healthier, I feel more awake and I’m a lot better off financially, I bought a new car and that encouraged me to stop smoking as I knew I couldn’t keep up with both. I’ve got a daughter, who is 5 years old and I think from me
stopping smoking she has benefited from it as well. When she was born I was still smoking and even if I didn’t smoke near her, she would go into the room I had been smoking in and she could smell it on my clothes. So stopping smoking for her is one of the main reasons I quit. She says all the time “my daddy doesn’t smoke anymore” and to hear her say that is definitely an achievement and I know she is proud of me, that is worth it. I think if a child sees their parents smoke, I think it is a big influence on them, they will see it as ok for them to smoke and I definitely think it is a bad influence. I don’t miss smoking at all. I think for your family and for your health it would be best to stop smoking, because it just affects everybody not just yourself. Like Jonathan, many local people have found that ‘it’s all right to ask for help’. The Barnsley NHS Stop Smoking Service currently helps an average of 40 people to quit each week. For more information, drop into the Quitshop at 12-14 Eldon Street or call the Service on (01226) 737077.
Rona was next to last but felt like a winner RONA Hurst came next to the last in a big race — but still felt like a winner. She has cerebral palsy and until 18 months ago walking was ‘like standing on glass’. Then she had an operation and she has improved enough to compete with hundreds of competitors in the three-mile Race for Life event in Sheffield, using a walking frame and finishing in one-and-a-half hours. Mum Maureen said: “She came next to the last but was given a round of applause and thought it was marvellous.” Rona, 41, of Monk Bretton, has been determined to overcome her problems since she was a baby. With the help of carers, she has lived on her own for 14 years. She works as a clerk at Mount Vernon hospital and has been driving since she was 19, now using an automatic car which has been adapted for her. Maureen said: “She is a very determined lady and lives a life as near normal as possible. “There’s lots she cannot do, but I am very proud of her.” Rona is expected to raise nearly £400 for Cancer Research, thanks to her efforts in the Sheffield walk.

Megan’s one to watch in Olympics
Your Local Stairlift Company
Jumping for joy: Megan Sylvester, left, and syncro partner Monique Gladding in action. (S)
Diver Megan Sylvester – tipped as ‘one to watch’ for the 2012 Olympic Games in London – was left jumping for joy as she collected a silver medal in a top event in the United States. Megan had attended the Coral Springs training camp – and from there competed at the Fort Lauderdale Fina Grand Prix. Megan and her syncro partner Monique Gladding came second with a score of 310 – just missing out on gold by four points. They now look set to be chosen to attend the 13th Fina World Championships in Rome from July 17 to August 2, in the women’s 10m syncro. If Megan does get the nod, she will be the youngest member of the British Diving team – and one of the youngest divers to compete in the World Championship. Her partner Monique is 28.

BRAVE CHRIS BITTEN BY THE SAILING BUG A FORMER serviceman from Barnsley has set his sights on becoming a professional sailor, just two years after having his right leg blown off by a roadside bomb in Iraq. Chris Herbert, 21, was inspired to take up sailing by the charity Toe in the Water – and at the weekend he competed alongside Olympic champions Ben Ainslie and Sarah Webb in the JPMorgan Asset Management Round the Island Race. Herbert’s boat was one of 1,779 that sailed round the 55-mile Isle of Wight course and the Barnsley man admits he has been well and truly bitten by the sailing bug. “The first time I got asked, I was not interested,” he admitted. “I have never imagined myself sailing before and I just thought it was a posh man’s sport! “But once I got out there I loved it – you are working under pressure as part of a team and in that respect it’s like being in the army.
Former TA man Chris Herbert with Olympic gold medalist Ben Ainslie. “Most importantly it gets you out of the rehabilitation centre because although that can be a great place, it does get you down after a while. “It is incredible to meet people like Ben Ainslie. Now I want to become a professional like him.” In 2007, Herbert – serving in the
Territorial Army – was in a lightarmoured vehicle when a roadside bomb exploded, killing his friend Luke Simpson and leaving him minutes from death before medical assistance arrived. Since then Herbert has been treated at Headley Court in Surrey but is studying for his UK Sailing Association degree in the Isle of Wight. Sailing alongside Herbert this weekend was Steve White, who single-handedly sailed 28,000 miles around the world in the recent Vendee Globe race where he finished eighth out of 30. But White insists his accomplishments pale into insignificance compared to what Herbert has been through. He said: “Chris is a remarkable person and I have no doubt he will become a professional in no time at all. “Toe in the Water’s aim is to restore these guys’ self-confidence. They can feel a little bit lost after being separated from their regiment and going through physiotherapy.”
