Winter 2019

Hello everyone.

Happy 2019!

I hope this is going to be a very good year for all of us in human services. My goals for this year are to continue to spread the word in our fields about the value of people with disabilities, the best ways to create a truly inclusive society, effective ways to teach new skills, strategies to enhance communication, adaptations to improve quality of life, and the improved use of assistive technology (both low tech and high tech) to enhance participation and contribution. To reach that goal, I continue to travel, train and teach in schools, adult services, mental health settings, the child welfare system, colleges and universities and elsewhere. Be sure to contact me if I can be of help to you or anyone who needs support. After spending more than 50 years in our field, I find that there is still much to learn, share and improve!
