What Every Person Needs to Know about People with Disabilities: Overcoming Attitudinal Barriers Towards People with Disabilities

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, Feb 4, 2008 - Religion - 56 pages

The purpose of this book is to dispel the many myths and stereotypes that many have about people who have disabilities; be it a visual or hearing impairment or a physical or cognitive disability. I pray that by sharing my experiences as someone with a visual impairment and sharing strategies to combat any attitude or intimidation you may have towards people with disabilities, you will soon see things in a different light.

About the author (2008)

I was born on June 16th, 1977 and was blind from birth.  I guess I was tired of being in my mother's belly and decided to come a little early.  In all seriousness, the fact that I'm alive is a miracle as I weighed only 24 ounces at birth and was blind resulting from too much oxygen.  This is my first try at writing a book and I pray my story will encourage and inspire others.  I'm an interpreter by trade and heavily involved in my local church as a member of the choir and secretary of Shepherd’s Care Ministry.  I also enjoy volunteering and have volunteered with organizations including The American Red Cross and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
