77 - Michelle Steiner on Living with an Invisible Disability

--:--
In this episode I chat with Michelle Steiner, from the blog Michelle’s Mission, about her lived experience with a learning disability.

Michelle talks about the impact her invisible disability had on her while growing up, and some of the adaptations she has made to accommodate her disability as an adult. We also discuss how Michelle’s learning disability empowers her in her work as a paraeducator of learners with disabilities.
Finally, we chat about Michelle’s photography and the role it plays in her life.
