Disability Awareness

Joanie leads “concert-conversations,” inviting groups to explore how, through awareness and collaboration, we can find creative ways to integrate and embrace people who are wired differently. As more individuals are diagnosed with autism and mental health challenges, neuro-typical communities must open their doors in new ways. Just as it takes a village to raise a child, so it will take all of us working together to create and maintain a world that welcomes and supports ALL children and their families.
