I'm speaking with Christina Ranieri and Vincent Bishop from Ability First Ottawa, a charity group in Ottawa Ontario Canada working to help those living with disabilities with getting services, lodging and helping caretakers when they are no longer able to care for their loved ones needs.
Christina was diagnosed with several learning disabilities and Vincent received an Asperger's diagnosis (now ASD) by finding paperwork himself on his diagnosis at the age of 18. Both Vincent and Christina are very open, honest, candid and real with their stories about who they are, who they are not, and what their accomplishments have been thus far. They are also discussing various stereotypes and boundaries that others have placed on them and how they educate people on living with different abilities.
A special shout-out to Crystaljoy Parman who was not able to appear with us on this episode but will be joining me on the show in the near future.
