5J Experiencing Disability
Many laws protect and provide opportunity for persons with disabilities but are they successful and do they cover all aspects of life? Progress has occurred but inadequate implementation, attitudes and a "tax" on disability continue to impede the full participation for this segment of the population and their families. Jim will share his professional and personal observations and experiences for this class of citizens living with a disability in America in 2017.
This engaging session will point out gaps in the laws, common misunderstandings of regulations, and the economic impact of disability upon individuals and families. Utilizing their own real life situations to highlight the impact upon themselves and the wide variety of disabilities included in the class of people with disabilities, the attendee will get a greater understanding of living with a disability in America.
