You can watch the dissertation being awarded here.

One of the updates for my self advocate collaborators is here.

The final update presentation for the research was given at TASH in Atlanta, in Dec. 2017 and is here.  

Sometime in 2018 there will be an online discussion of some of the dissertation that will be recorded and posted here.

I recently became a Taos Institute scholar – which makes me feel very humble given the company!

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.
