Disability Information and Resources
Universal Access Symbol
Welcome. I'm Lynda Kohn and this is my disabilities Info. My site's goal is to show resources equally for people with disabilities, families, and professionals. There are many sites aimed at people with disabilities only. Realize there is definitely overlap. Many special needs persons are also parents and/or professionals. There are resources for you too.
The links are for information purposes only. They are not approved or disapproved.. Knowledge is empowerment. Being empowered is great importance. Personal definition: knowing your rights, options so you can advocate for yourself. "Nothing about us without us. The health sites arn't meant to replace your physican. The webmaster of these sites may know heir facts, your physician knows you
Update. Jerry unfortunately, sadly passed away from Acute Megakaryoblastic Leukemia. He received the best medical care but his cancer was too severe. His intelligence, humor, compassion for people with disabilities will be missed. I believe his spirit lives on. Please note everything in this paragraph regarding Jerry should be in the past tense. My husband, Jerry and Ilived in an apt. in Phila,PA near U. of Penn and Drexel U. We're involved in Artists for Recovery. AFR is a group that encourages creativity for those who have either or both mental illness/substance abuse problems. They have performance space, art shows, rap groups. To me its lively, stimulating and fun. Update Artist Worker AFR Art Gallery

Here are some paintings I did from Coalition Ingenu. A group for artists with various disabilities. I believe this is how its so much better to praise, encourage, then to criticize. I consider my ability to arouse enthusiasm among my people the greatest asset I possess, and the way to develop the best in a person is by appreciation and encouragement. I believe in giving people incentive to work. So I am anxious to praise but loath to find fault. I am hearty in my approbation and lavish in my praise. Author: Charles Schwab
