Request for Stories: Life Experiences of Adults with Developmental Disabilities

Kathie Snow, author of Disability is Natural, is collecting stories of childhood experiences by people with developmental disabilities. She is requesting “good and bad” stories about family life, growing up with a disability, experiences with therapists, interventions and medical care, relationships, education and independent living. Snow’s goal is to write a book that includes real-life childhood experience with her recommendations on how to parent children with developmental disabilities differently.

There are no length requirements and no firm due date. However, her April 27th email asked for them as soon as possible! Stories can be published anonymously if requested. If your story is chosen you will receive 3 free copies of the book once it is published.
