Do you know an adult with autism, Down syndrome, or another special need?
One in eight people on our planet live with some form of disability.
And they all deserve to live productive, engaged lives. Are we willing to help them accomplish this goal?
The mother of an adult with autism, Andrea Moriarty leveraged her son’s passion, talent, and personality to help him create an out-of-the-box vocation: A podcast. After more than 80 interviews, she recognized three vital attitudes that people with disabilities teach us - risk taking, humility, and kindness. And when we integrate these people into society, we all thrive.
Radical Inclusion is an entertaining glimpse behind the scenes of interviews with Temple Grandin, Aloe Blacc, Sesame Street’s Murray Monster, and others. Moriarty also shares how she grappled to embrace risk, humility, and kindness. Information on interacting with people on the spectrum and descriptions of model programs for adults provide practical help. And popular movies illustrate the concepts in unique ways. Above all, Radical Inclusion is a call to step out of our comfort zones, care about others, extend grace, and enhance our own lives and communities.
