Disability Advocate

Being Inclusive

Sheldon was born healthy, but three days after his birth he stopped breathing which led to brain damage and cerebral palsy. Sheldon can’t speak with his mouth, but with technology, he speaks about inclusion and how belonging creates resilience and hope.

Our National Hope Talks is about not just hoping things will get better, but looking to HOPE as a plan.

H – HABITS
O – learning how to OVERCOME
P – getting the right PEOPLE around us
E – learning to find EXPRESSION

Sheldon speaks to the “P” of hope as a plan.
