“Disability is Natural”

Motivating, Inspiring, Life-Changing

“Yes, like gender, ethnicity, and other  traits, disability is one of many natural  characteristics of being human!  What can  happen when we deconstruct disability,  use People First Language, and focus on  people’s strengths and abilities? Our  attitudes drive our actions, and awesome  change is possible when we think and  talk differently!”

“Where in the world are the WALDOS?” 

Where are the people to hire, and how do  you find the right ones? How do you trust  someone to provide the standard of care  that the family has been providing?

“Living Real Lives and Dreaming  Big Dreams” 

When Children and adults with  disabilities have important tools for  success they can enjoy self-directed lives,  be included in their communities, and  live the lives of their dreams.
