Kathie Snow's Presentations
Revolutionary . . . Life-Changing . . .
Eye-Opening . . . Thought-Provoking . . .
These are some of the words people use to describe my presentations. I have fun during my presentations—and you will, too! I share personal stories and lots of humor, question the status quo and conventional wisdom, and help participants reclaim their common sense, in the hope that all people with developmental disabilities can live the lives of their dreams, included in all areas of society!
I believe each person who has been diagnosed with something we call a "disability" has strengths, gifts, and talents, and when we focus on those—instead of the diagnosis—great outcomes are possible! Since the way we think drives the way we act, we must begin with a change in our attitudes and perceptions—and the words we use—about individuals with disabilities. I also believe the inclusion of people with disabilities can best be accomplished when they move from clienthood to citizenship. This can occur when individuals with disabilities and their families move away from dependence on special services and begin accessing the abundant supply of natural supports and generic services in their communities. And everyone has an important role to play in this effort!
Kathie should speak to every organization, group, and government in the world. Her presentation is a work of philosophy, art, and activism! Nevada conference participant
Since 1991, I've presented hundreds of keynotes and in-depth workshops at conferences across the United States and Canada, for audiences of parents of children with disabilities, adults with disabilities, service providers, educators, and other professionals. In addition, I've provided consultation for disability organizations, human service agencies, and educators; coordinated conferences; and developed training curricula.
I'm enthusiastic, positive, and passionate about ensuring children and adults with disabilities live real lives, fully included in their homes, schools, workplaces, and communities. The commonsense strategies I share can help us achieve this critically important goal. In addition to on-site, in-person presentations, I also provide teleseminars and private consultation for individuals, groups, schools, and other organizations.
Kathie: Your inspiring presentation closed our conference on just the right note, and our participants were raving about you...We're delighted you were able to join us and know that you'll be coming back to New York State before long. Ann Hardiman, Executive Director, NYSACRA
