Maria Weinrich, a long time friend from Chapel Hill now iving in Costa Rica, asked me to make a video over Skype that she could share with her college students about what it was like growing up being ornb the year after people with disabilies were given the right to education in the US.  Have a look at this link:

It serves as a useful reminder to all of us that early education and expectations can really affect a person with disability’s choices later in life.
