Al tickles audiences with his humor and slays hearts with true life stories that highlight the extreme struggles he and other people with disabilities overcome by helping others and by focusing on and appreciating what he still has, not what he lost. Physicians told him he would never walk without assistance, talk understandably, or drive legally, but he pushed past these set boundaries. Al’s strong human spirit and authentic humorous responses to life are what makes his Winners Don’t Quit presentation unique, laugh out loud funny and unforgettably authentic. Winners Don’t Quit is for people who are ready to bring their game to the next level. Is that you? With a correctly built attitude strategy, you can do so much more than you ever thought possible! Learning Objectives: 1. By including bits of my personal experiences, listeners will see that, like themselves, people with disabilities can be competent, capable people with dreams and goals and senses of humor. 2. To provide clear and comprehensive steps and tools that can be used to eliminate discomfort associated with or discrimination against people with disabilities. 3. Expose the three myths that can color how people with disabilities are seen. The following are the type of questions that will be answered in both the keynote and the workshop. * What if a speech impaired person says something to you that you don’t quite understand? * When should you offer assistance to someone who is physically impaired? * How can you help someone without calling undue attention to yourself or them? There are definite definable strategies for interacting with people who are living with visible mental and/or physical disabilities. Invisible disabilities are tougher to identify the existence of and therefore more difficult to respond to in a helpful way. While the strategies covered can smooth interaction with people who have “invisible” disabilities, some of the covered strategies can be used with benefit on everyone interacted with. “My physical and emotional rehab journey is looked at through the lenses of The Four Agreements by Miguel Ruiz as we consider how the agreements affect our relationships with disabilities, with others and with ourselves.” Al helps attendees feel comfortable and lighthearted despite the heavy topic being discussed and the necessary truths being learned.
