Special Event with Kathy Snow: Disability is Natural and Other Revolutionary Common Sense!

Wednesday, October 14, 2015
One Day, Two Times, No Charge!

Kathie Snow will challenge how you think about people with disabilities.

“Let’s get beyond all the doom-and-gloom that is often the norm regarding disability. My son, Benjamin, and others with disabilities are Real People who can and should live Real Lives, included in every aspect of their communities, and living the lives of their dreams! It’s happening in our family, and in many other families, too.”

“One American in five has a disability, making people with disabilities the largest minority group and the only group that anyone can join at any time: at birth or through an accident, illness, or the aging process…. A person with a disability is more like people without disabilities than different. The U.S. Developmental Disabilities Act states, “Disability is a natural part of the human experience…” [Furthermore] people with disabilities are not their diagnoses or disabilities; they are people, first. When we adopt new ways of thinking and talking about people with disabilities, we’ll not only exert a positive influence on their lives, but on our society as a whole.”

Come spend a day and be inspired! Kathie challenges today’s conventional wisdom while she motivates and helps others learn new ways of thinking so *all* people can actively engage with their communities.
