How People with Disability and Their families are Building Better Communities
Facilitated by John O'Brien and Connie Lyle O'Brien (USA) for Pathways to Leadership
People with intellectual disabilities and their families make contributions to community life that most experts never predicted. Their achievements have led to changes in policies and laws. But most still face a hard road to take their rightful place as respected, well-supported participants in schools, places of work and leisure, and civic and political life.
In this time together, we’ll explore some lessons from the stories of people and families who are making a positive difference in their communities.
