Test Yourself For Hidden Bias


I volunteer with the B.C. Family Support Institute

Smaller disability support organizations I really like are:

Lifetime Networks Victoria

TLC – Total Living Concept, in Kent, Washington (where I am a board member)

LiveWorkPlay in Ottawa, Ontario (which was gracious enough to help me by hosting my graduate research on leadership in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities)

Spectrum Society

There are many, many other agencies, small and big, that I really like as well, and I have worked with many of them!
