92 - Katie Selby on the Importance of Learning Self-Advocacy as a Person with a Learning Disability
During the conversation we discuss Katie’s schooling and college education, how she learned to self-advocate and how she teaches that important skill to the students with whom she now works.
We also talk about the book Katie has started writing, that was inspired by her reading of Stutterer Interrupted: The Comedian Who Almost Didn't Happen by Nina G.
And, of course, I jump at the chance to learn a little about Katie’s adorable rescue dogs, Barney and Fred, who have their own Facebook page.
