If you would have asked me a decade ago, I would have had no idea I'd be championing the causes of people with different abilities. I was tucked away in my neurotypical world, enjoying my work and past times with no thought to the plight of so many others. I'm ashamed of this as I was once employed through a Memphis agency to work with those with disabilities to help them develop skills like public speaking. I'm most ashamed that, after the grants had dried up and I had moved on from the organization, that I didn't stay in touch with all those wonderful people that I had gotten to know. Occasionally I would look back at the photographs from those times with fondness, but I didn't stay in touch.
Now, with a child on the spectrum a huge part of my everyday life, I am constantly looking for new knowledge of laws, of resources, and of information in general to help our lives. Disability Scoop is one of those places I've found online that I like. The website, built like an online magazine, has the latest news concerning those with disabilities including laws, education, and more.
