Advocating For Your Child or: How My Mom's Big Mouth Got Me To Where I Am Today
Child Advocacy

I just didn't get my doctorate and just become America's only stuttering stand up comedian! My parents, Kathy and Jerry, played the first and most significant role in fighting attitudes that might have prevented me from succeeding. In my article on Disability.gov: https://usodep.blogs.govdelivery.com/2014/02/20/how-my-dads-hearing-loss-and-my-moms-big-mouth-got-me-to-where-i-am-today/, I examine how the advocacy that my parents did on my behalf didn't always help me directly, but the messages were important for me to internalize. I talk to parents, helping professionals, teachers and administrators about the importance of developing advocacy skills and show children with disabilities that they are worth fighting for.
