After a little breathing room this winter, it’s time to again hit the road and spread the special-needs gospel, which means the blogging posts may not be as frequent as they have been lately. Here are a few highlights of some of my Apr/May professional gigs:

Talk/Signing: ‘Rolling-Focusing on Ability’, Project Advisor/WKAR-TV, East Lansing, MI.  This one is especially dear to me because I once worked at WKAR and had to leave the job I loved to meet my son’s needs and ensure his future was brighter. That was tough for me, but a no-choice choice.  My involvement in this event represents a true full-circle moment.  It’s a great station with terrific people. I’m proud to be ‘back on board’ for this one day. /

Talk/Signing/Author’s Reception: New Canaan Library, New Canaan, CT. /

Interview on ‘Live with Lisa’ Radio Program, Yale University, New Haven, CT (recently featured on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of NYC!)/

Off to NYC-for program/showing/review of the film ‘Including Samuel’ at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, part of the Sprout Film Festival which highlights developmental disabilities. /

Then home for a couple of days before heading off to one of my fav cities,  Chi-Town!  That trip will include indulging in deep-dish birthday pizza, and doing my best to boost the economy on Michigan Avenue!  If I run into Oprah, I’ll say ‘hi’ for all of us!

I am also pleased to be featured in the April issues of Newsmax magazine (‘Who I am Now’) and MSU Today magazine, ( and recently completed an interview for a Chicago Parent piece on sibs (not yet released).  
Life is hectic, but good!  Hope the same is true for you.
