Disability Awareness

Show Notes:

Do you have a child with a disability? Have you ever thought about how others might view a disability? Can you tell your child how to explain their disability to their friends?

Our guest for this episode is Gabriella Tiberio, a teenager who has created what may be the best representation of disabilities we’ve seen! She may be young, but she understands what it means to make disabilities a part of who someone is and not the only characteristic that people see.

Join us for this interview and find out what brought Gabriella to write a children’s book about disability awareness and how it’s being used to speak out for children in their schools and how others are using it to teach their children how to understand why some people they meet might need special accommodations at times.
