Michael De Rosa is a disability advocate, and the strength of his advocacy is God’s love for him through Christ.
Because of who God created him to be, he easily sees the proverbial glass as always half full. As an advocate for the disabled, he wants them to see their value and then be able to communicate this to others.
At birth, he had a very serious speech impediment. Because of what he has learned and because of where he has come from, he identifies with the disabled population, wanting for them what he has found, namely hope beyond disability.
He currently leads a discipleship class at his local church whereby he has the blessed responsibility to help others understand a little better what it means to follow Christ.
Join us as he shares his journey with Jesus, his hope for healing -- and how to dismantle disabilities!

Join Bishop Gerald Scott as he discusses the plights of the physically, developmentally and mentally challenged.
Have you ever noticed that all other groups of people are looked after? Race, Sexual orientation, gender? What about the disabled? Some jobs SAY they don't discriminate based on disability, but, many find a reason NOT to hire someone with a physical challenge.

Let's talk about it.
Better Understanding Disabilities is a nonprofit organization of compassionate, comprehensive, qualified professionals who work to educate parents to improve the lives of children with learning disabilities. When a child is first identified as a student in need of services, many parents have no knowledge of the process until they receive a parent handbook during an individualize education plan (IEP) meeting. The parent handbook is often written in a language unfamiliar to most parents. Parents are often overwhelmed by this meeting because it is not like a familiar parent-teacher conference. The meeting includes many educational professionals (administrator, teacher, therapists, counselor, psychologist, etc.
