    Blacks Who Persevered in Spite of Disabilities

    in Self Help

    Did you know that Whoopi Goldberg had a learning disorder as a child? Were you aware that Harriet Tubman had epilepsy? These are only two of the many examples of Blacks who became successful despite their disabilities. Some people tend to discourage others with disabilities from achieving their dreams because "it's for their own good"; they want to overprotect them or they just don't understand how a person can accomplish anything despite his/her "limitations." Once you hear these different celebrities' stories, you'll never view people with disabilities the same way again. You will be inspired and encouraged to uplift someone else and even accomplish your own goals!

    Overcoming ADDversity is something I believe I was destined to do, but more importantly what you were destined to do.


    You see, it's my belief that MANY women in business suffer from adult ADD and have NO idea how deeply it is affecting their ability to manage their brain to grow their business into a sustainable source of income NOW and create wealth for their family, for future generations to come.


    Instead, we go about most days feeling like we're on the Hamster Wheel of Life. Because in addition to running a business, we're running a life: we're mothers, wives, girlfriends, sisters, sister-friends,daughters, and elder caregivers.

    Group Homes for Children with Developmental Disabilities

    in School

    I have a child with a developmental disability.. where will they live without me?


     


    Rachael has worked with individuals with developmental disabilities for approximately 7 years. Most recently, she was an Assistant Manager for The Center for Disability Services for a group home with 7 adults. Rachael is currently a full time MSW student at SUNY Albany. 


     


    When a family has a child with a developmental disability, their future is often uncertain. Individuals with developmental disabilities are often somewhat, if not completely, dependent on their caretakers. Group homes are often an option for families to consider as their child continues to grow and parents become older and less able to care for their child.
