The Unusual is NOT impossible: Why Stories Matter to Building Partnerships

Conference Year: 

2017

Primary Speaker name: 

Often in our lives as families and providers we face unusual challenges.  These moments, though troubling at times, can be exactly what we need to discover creative ways to support each other and our children with delays and disabilities. 

Janice will share powerful stories of her family’s quest to shift the unusual into the possible as they raised and supported their 32-year old son, Micah with an intellectual disability.  She will explore why stories matter and how, when we listen deeply to each other, partnerships can be strengthened and creativity can be unleashed.  Janice's stories remind us that we don't stand alone.
