Lisa Wallace, author of the book Embrace, chats with us about her book and experiences raising her daughter named Maddy, a person with 'diverse abilities'.

Lisa is also joined by her other daughter Lauren, who together offer us not only a sense of hope and inspiration with their contributions to the topic of diverse abilities, they also share with us the profound importance of both using person-first language (i.e. person with autism) and viewing individuals who are different not as disabled, but rather as individuals with diverse abilities whose differences should be celebrated. Enjoy!
