National Ability Awareness Month

Happy National Ability Awareness Month!NatlDisabilityAwareMonth

Nope, not a typo! Nick and the AiA team call this National Ability Awareness Month. There was a day when Nick explained that he did not think of his wheelchair as a disability. His flaming wheels are the only moving legs he has ever known.  He feels disabled only when the chair battery dies!

The National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD) says, “Our goal for this month is to create awareness about developmental disabilities, tell stories of people who live with a disability and show their lives.”  Nick shares this goal.

You can find Nick’s story in a variety of places and through a variety of means.  Born in the East African country of Ethiopia, Nick highlights his childhood years with stories of great adventure, meaning and heroics through his books for children.

Nick would like everyone to feel that they are a “good you” (In Nick’s words).

Want to hear more of his words?

Contact Nick  for a special presentation today! Let’s help everyone see how able we all can be!
