Thank you Keith. Gives us so much to consider for our adult children---and letting them go. My 27 yr old son said to me yesterday, "Do you know what I'm telling my therapist? I'm telling them to tell you not to worry so much about me!"

Thank you so much, Keith. A much needed reminder. It's not easy 'letting go' but it is our responsibility to equip them to navigate the world, just like their siblings.

My son is almost 8….we have always had expectations for him!Someone once told me to mourn the child I thought I would have. We NEVER did! My son is amazing and perfect as he is. It’s refreshing to hear you speak. We parent our kids like you were! We want them to be responsible good humans!
Marie O. Hightower

Thank you Keith. I am just getting started. My 4 year old was diagnosed with autism. I will allow him to us his disability as a excuse

Thank you Keith! I had the privilege of hearing you before. Your words are so powerful and inspiring! I love what you said about "no crayons' in this class! We need to continue to advocate for individuals with disabilities to be included in their school, work and community!!

I have a 15 year old that is in a wheel chair but has the ability to walk on his own. What advise can you share with him because he always ask me why is he the only person in the family with a physical disability?
Diana Smaglik - PA Family Network
01:15:51
It always amazes me when people are so in awe that my son with multiple disabilities can navigate the world for himself (with supports). He is a very capable 35 year old man...and we need to not underestimate him!
Linda Cartwright
01:16:16
A lot of learned dependency is taught in school (albeit with good intentions). Parents need to advocate for supporting independence and using natural peer supports.
Deborah Ohmacht
01:16:18
Wonderful presentation! thank you!!!
Nancy Christman
01:21:23
Thank you for the feedback. My son (23 years old) loves living at home. He has no interest in living anywhere else or on his own. He works 25-30 hours part time and loves this. Any thoughts on how we can help him explore being more independent?

Airlines have the option of informing them if someone with a disability is traveling independently and requires assistance. They do things like make sure they get to the correct gates, etc.

You can also get travel training, put as a goal in the IEP.
