People with visible and non-visible physical disabilities are reminded constantly by advertisements that able-bodied persons are beautiful, productive, and successful. However, most people hold the perception that a physically or mentally disabled person is just the opposite. Dr. Danita Applewhite is joined by Supermodel Beverly Johnson, Spokesperson for the Global Down Syndrome Foundation 2014 and recipient of the Quincy Jones Exceptional Advocacy Award. They will share a unique perspective of how perceptions of beauty and disability can be changed.  A very special thanks to Target, Walmart, and many other retailers who help "White Apple Institute change the perception of Disabled to Differently-Abled for Success in the Classroom, Workplace, and Life!"  The positive advertisement and equal hiring practices are deeply appreciated.
