For K-12 students the subject of Disabilities and Bullying is a much needed discussion.

"Last One Picked, So What!" We can turn it around by Ben D. Anderson was written in response to an email that he received from a teacher that wanted her students to quit using the word "Retard".

He relates in this booklet what words mean and how they hurt people. This book is for 5th to 12th graders for about a 60 to 75 minute presentation and discussion period ( Q & A). We can have a discussion and work through the booklet motivating the youths and hoping that the outcome would be that the students will not use language that hurts other people and that they will not bully other kids who are different than they are. The booklet is $2.50 each in quantities of 30 or more.  Program can be with or without the booklet.

"If I Can Do It, So Can You." Going to College is a motivational program that suits all students whether with or without a disability.  He also speaks on the topic of self-advocacy and vocational rehabilitation.


He will speak to your congregation, youth events, or summer camps or  retreats on disabilities, inclusion, self-motivation and how to widen your  welcome within your communities.
