“God wastes nothing, even disability. He has a purpose for you right where you are.”After receiving her EMT certification, Cady Bell was on the path to becoming a doctor to use her skills in service overseas. But when she began experiencing severe pain, seizures, stomach issues, and fainting, her life's plan dramatically changed. As Cady searched for the cause of her symptoms, her intensifying health challenges forced her to drop out of school and quit her job.On the Joni and Friends Ministry Podcast, Cady is sharing her journey to finding a diagnosis for Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), a rare connective tissue disorder that affects mobility and strength. This invisible disability that has no cure has brought physical and emotional ups and downs, but has also beautifully deepened her relationship with God—something she wouldn't trade for perfect health. Hear how EDS helped Cady discover new joy and purpose and how she's using her struggles to reach other women who might feel hopeless in their hardships.

Faith Malton is a natural-born engineer. She was born missing her right arm and thus, grew up problem-solving and adapting to her environment through innovation. More importantly, she engineered her mental aptitude and psyche to be rooted in a growth mindset. A student ambassador, she found herself inquisitive on how other cultures worked and how culture determines the perception of disability. Her curiosity led her to places like Antarctica, India, and Tanzania. Every trip was an awakening and revealed to her how the built environment shapes the way in which humans experience the world. She now works at Walter P. Moore, an international civil engineering firm, doing site design. She believes design teams have a responsibility for their designs to be universally accessible, inspire the human spirit, and nurture a connection to the natural world.Malton also works to help others break through mental barriers and navigate the world with limb differences through her YouTube channel, One Arm Wonder.Resources:YouTube: One Arm WonderInstagram: @theonearmwonderrrTEDx Talk: From Victim to Creator

Lauren Rogers is our guest today for this epic two-part Mormon Stories interview. After suffering through a restrictive diet, harassment, and medical neglect on her Mormon mission to Chile, Lauren found herself permanently disabled as she made her way back home to the US. In part two, Lauren also tells us about the same-sex attraction she repressed throughout her life as a devout Mormon and descendant of Brigham Young, eventually leading to an extremely fascinating exit from the church and a wildly eye-opening description of how she continues a healthy relationship with her husband. It's a gripping story from start to finish! Even Lauren's shelf breaker and realizations about God might be a first-ever for Mormon Stories!

As millions of children head back to school, some states have banned mask mandates on school grounds. As of this recording, school districts in eight states cannot require students to wear a mask in school; if they do, many risk losing crucial state funding. This ban ignores national recommendations by the CDC to wear a mask indoors for those who are unvaccinated or in an area of high COVID transmission. For children with disabilities or families with high-risk medical conditions, the ban makes in-person learning perilous. Many children are forced back into remote learning even though studies have shown students -- particularly students of color and those with disabilities -- fall behind when they can't attend school in person. Excluding these children from in-person learning violates federal law which is why the ACLU's Disability Rights Project is suing on behalf of groups of parents with vulnerable children in both South Carolina and Iowa. Joining us to talk about the case is Samantha Boevers, one of the parents in the case, and Susan Mizner, the director of the ACLU's Disability Rights Project.

This week features a very special back to back, two podcast episode release as Annette speaks with two guests who were interviewed for a recent Today Show Article called “Autism Wars.” Today's episode features Annette's interview with Kerry Magro, who is an award-winning national speaker, a best-selling author and a role model in the disability community. Annette & Kerry speak about the “Autism Wars” article, disability in the workplace, bullying, unity and inclusion. As a child, Kerry was non-verbal at 2.5 years and diagnosed with autism at age 4. Kerry was not able to speak in complete sentences until age 7 and went through years of therapy to get where he is today. Kerry has a doctorate in Educational Technology Leadership and is currently the CEO and founder of KFM Making a Difference which is a non-profit corporation that focuses on disability advocacy and housing. Autism Wars Article While most people don't like the “Autism Wars” title of the Today Show article, thinking “war” is too strong, Kerry does feel there has been a divide in the community for quite some time between parents of autistic children and autistic adults. There are those on the autistic adult side that feel that parents of autistic children share too much and parents who feel that autistic adults don't share enough to allow them information they feel they need. There needs to be unity, inclusion – both sides working together rather than separate. The article did have a positive note for Kerry that many parents reached out to him about finding advocates and building friendships between parents and autistic adults. Social Media Sharing Another portion of this autistic divide is on sharing on social media. Some autistic adults feel that some parents overshare videos and photos on social media of their autistic children, basing this on the child being too young to consent. Sharing in smaller, local groups for educational purposes can be beneficial but sharing to Facebook in larger groups might not. Kerry mentions there is toxicity in social media and sometimes it is best to think before you share anything especially if it may cross a privacy line. Disabled in the Workplace Kerry also speaks about the disabled in the workplace. Statistics say that up to 90% of autistic adults are either unemployed or underemployed. Kerry notes there should be a better onboarding process for disabled individuals possibly offering a one-day job trial or having a speaker talk to them about their experiences. Annette asks what smaller businesses can do to be more disability inclusive in their hiring process. Kerry mentions to make sure your business keeps up with ADA accommodations for disabilities, having past employees offer testimonials and making sure your job listings note that you are open to hire anyone. Unfortunately, there are a few job listing sites that will automatically keep out resumes that list words regarding “disability.” Bullying Bullying is another topic that Kerry speaks of often to parents. Kerry mentions we need to realize though that bullying does not just affect school age children. There is a rise of bullying lawsuits in the workplace and people with disabilities being taken advantage of. Everyone should have a safe environment to work in. October is National Bullying Prevention Month as well as National Disability Employment Awareness Month. Final Tips Kerry leaves us with his tips for what he would say to parents with autistic kids and disabled adults about coming together, being in unity. Kerry feels each side is allowed to disagree but should take more time to listen and be more constructive in nature. Don't talk over each other. Possibly find a neutral mediator to listen to both sides of the arguments and offer their thoughts. Disability groups are already facing challenges from outside the community. They should come together, work together and be stronger together. Contact Kerry If you would like to learn more about Kerry Magro, you can find him on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Comedian, Josh Blue, sat down with Erik and Jeff at our studio in Golden, CO to discuss his career as a comic who happens to have cerebral palsy. Following his groundbreaking win on NBC's Last Comic Standing in 2006, Josh Blue has risen through the ranks to become a well-established headliner at venues throughout the world. His story has been featured on Fox, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, and CNN. He was the first comedian to perform stand-up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, was named Best Winning Reality Show Guest on Live with Regis and Kelly, and made standout appearances on Comics Unleashed. Recently, Josh crushed his set on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and was honored with a performance at the William H. Macy Gala at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, Canada. He also just recorded his fifth-hour special at his home club, Comedy Works in Denver, CO.

His stand-up routine is in a constant state of evolution and his off-the-cuff improvisational skills guarantee that no two shows are alike.

On this brand new series on the Disability After Dark feed, Cripology, I shine a bright light on our disabled past by looking at disabled history, something that I am fascinated by. On this episode, we look at the connection between the fairy and changeling folklore and disability. In this first episode, I explore the fact that certain disabilities were often understood as changelings or fairies. We talk about how parents often used folklore mythology to kill their disabled children, and I explore how the changeling myth has impacted disability as we understand it today. If you want to look at the research I used Research paper by Susan Ebberly, 1988. Tell me which other historical things you want me to look at in this series.

Executive Director and Co-Founder Tommie Storms of the American Association of Adapted Sports Programs, Inc. (AAASP) joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum podcast to discuss the association's 25th anniversary and the journey of adapting sports across the country. Storms joins hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick for the Around Atlanta segment. After the 1996 Olympics, many kids inspired by the incredible athletes, including kids with disabilities, wanted to participate in sports. In Atlanta, the Paralympic Games, the first full-blown games centered around athletes with disabilities, were particularly inspirational. Disabled kids inspired by the games needed somewhere they could participate in popular sports. Storms co-founded the American Association of Adapted Sports Programs, Inc., a charity focusing on adapting popular sports after the 1996 games. She met the needs of disabled kids with a dream of playing sports such as basketball, track and field and football by taking popular sports and adapting them for kids in wheelchairs. Mostly, the sports look similar but adapted for special needs and varying levels of abilities. Noticing many similar community programs, Storms and her team saw a lack of school programs and focused on replicating their curriculum within the schools to meet this underserved niche. Information about their program and mission was circulated through different schools and eventually led to seasonal competitions, 35 programs across Georgia and tournaments. In their fifth year, they approached the Georgia High School Association to incorporate what they were doing into the sports infrastructure in Georgia. “We've created a wonderful program,” said Storms. “An easy way for parents and kids to get involved.” There was a learning curve and several barriers in the beginning. The association received concerns that children in wheelchairs were too fragile, and participation would lead to injuries. Newspapers also did not consider the games sports. Fortunately, after witnessing the games and experiencing them firsthand, many change their perspective. “They will take you where you want to go if you can show them where there are barriers, how easily they are removed and how they can be a part of it,” stated Storms when discussing the barriers that they have overcome. Their team, The Gwinnett Heat is advertised in newspapers and has previously won a state title. These teams regularly play against teams without disabled players and adapt the rules, using the association's standardization and line of sporting goods. The programs offered by AAASP assist teachers around the country in determining what sports their kids can play, what the adapted sport looks like and obtaining the equipment. What makes them unique is that they are the first and only interscholastic athletic association solely focused on adapted sports for kids with physical disabilities. Neglected by the school system, physically disabled kids who lacked cognitive impairment could not participate in a traditional team. That is the gap that the American Association for Adapted Sports Programs, Inc. fills. This competitive program helps kids develop their strength, cardiovascular system as well as many other physical benefits. In Georgia, if a parent has a child with a disability, they can contact AAASP or declare themselves to a coach. The child must be in first through twelfth grade, with or without a wheelchair, able to ambulate on their own or use an assistive device. After contact is made, AAASP will determine the needs of the child and what is available nearby. In the Atlanta area, the focus is team sports, but track and field are available statewide. The Wheelchair Varsity Finals Games has been televised since offered by the association. The event is broadcasted by the National Federation of State High Schools Association and covers boy's and girl's finals for associations across the nation.
