A major event examining the place of students and adults with disabilities in our community is scheduled this saturday at Portland State. It’s called All Born In: A Cross Disability Inclusion Conference.
Organizers say that youth and adults with disabilities should be mainstreamed into all areas of society – from schoolrooms and day care centers, to the workplace.
Activist Kathie Snow will be lecturing at the Inclusion Conference. She is the author of “Disability is Natural: Revolutionary Common Sense for Raising Successful Children with Disabilities.”
She spoke this morning with KBOO’s Lisa Loving.
