The fourth episode of Stereotype Life came out today. Apologies for the two day delay. As someone who wears hearing aids, I was struggling with creating the transcripts despite using a program (transcripts need to be double checked since the software isn’t perfect).
I sent out a call asking for an editor and luckily, someone volunteered! Her name is Frankie Martinez, a fiction writer from California. I’m so grateful. You can learn more about her here at https://stereotype.life/meet-the-team/ and also on her website www.frankieiswriting.com.
Anyway, in the fourth episode of STL, we discuss self-accommodation, self-advocacy and building resilience with Jason Anderson. How do we make accommodations for ourselves, learn how to self-advocate, and figure out what we need so that we can get what we need to be successful? What does it mean to build resilience? What are some resources in the community to help students with disabilities?
