Part Two – Can’t Read, Can’t Write: Here’s My Book with Michael Jacques

November 22, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

FREE

Part Two
Can’t Read, Can’t Write, Here’s My Book is told through the eyes of Michael Jacques, a compassionate and determined young adult with autism and an intellectual disability. His book—which is written by using an iPad’s speech-to-text function—is a down-to-earth collection of compelling life stories and discoveries that teach us how to embrace and celebrate our differences. Michael, who never surrenders to the idea of “can’t,” speaks about topics such as learning, inclusion, advocating, independence, and the power of perseverance.

This is the second part of a two-part workshop.

This will be a Facebook Live Event with Michael where participants are encouraged to ask questions either before the event, through a brief survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MichaelJacques ), or the night of the event.   This event is ideal for anyone looking to hear an uplifting message of hope, including educators, caregivers and families.  

Registration details to follow.  Please contact Linda Sonnenburg at linda@goodbeginningsday.com for more details.
