I was THRILLED to be part of this workshop, in which some old and new friends who are self advocates presented to their peers at the B.C. People First conference. They wanted to get away from powerpoint and liked the idea of a graphic “map” to help them remember where they were in the course of their workshop. After we wrote down all their ideas, I came up with these graphics and they seemed to work well to keep everyone on track. It was a great workshop.

Director of Research, Training and Development, Spectrum Society for Community Living. As well as being responsible for in-house training and research on best practices in the field of helping people with disabilities organize their supports, I support self advocacy groups, contract to provide training and workshops to other agencies and groups and facilitate inclusive research groups. I am the author/illustrator of three books, co-editor of a new anthology for 2012, and co-editor of Spectrum Press. My passion is creating networks of best practice leaders in our field to share person-centred alternatives in how people with disabilities can be facilitated to live lives where their gifts are necessary components in their communities. I am currently half way through a Masters degree in Interdisciplinary studies, focusing on Equity and Adult Education, and particularly on how people with intellectual disabilities may be supported in participatory leadership groups.
