An inclusive society is a stronger one.
My name is Susan Schaffer. Welcome to my site. I have had a physical disability since birth. I reach my goals but I may arrive at them in a different way. I earned a master’s degree in the vocational rehabilitation from Hofstra University. I then worked as a job coach and a job placement specialist for adults with developmental disabilities.
30 years ago, I started a program that promotes disability and shares information to better understand challenges. Once we learn a bit about people’s differences we realize that similarities are greater. Everyone has something worthwhile to contribute to society.
I have spoken with businesses, veterans, clergy, and individuals about the importance of communication. I have implemented activities, programs, and projects in the following venues: colleges, vendor fairs, flea markets, church groups, support groups, companies, libraries, county meetings, agencies, etc. I’d like to help you conduct a disability dialogue.
This site addresses the following:
1) Educational presentations that encourage people’s questions.
2) Activities that encourage communication and inclusion.
3) Empowerment and support for people with disabilities to thrive.
Contact me to plan a program or let me know how I can help.
