Our speakers bureau, featuring one of our clients, Nick Welch, is a way for Nick to reach his full potential and get his message out to the community. Nick is going to share with his audience that he is in a wheelchair and has cerebral palsy, but is very high functioning. He’s been in a wheelchair his entire life, and needs help doing even the basic things like preparing his own food or changing clothes. He has a job at Mission Road, as a Via bus traffic coordinator, and loves to do it each and every day, as it makes him feel like he’s contributing. He gets paid and gets to spend his money on things in the city, just like everybody else, and be part of capitalist America.
Nick is available to speak at both businesses and schools.
For adult and business audiences, Nick shares his own story of overcoming challenges to motivate your audience to work to achieve their greatest individual potential. He talks about the differences between typical people and those with special needs, but more importantly, the similarities. He shares that everybody has a challenge or burden in their lives, but it just happens that you can see his. He encourages you to think about your burden and work through it to not let it define you, just like Nick has done.
At schools, Nick talks to the kids about how bullying affects people and how to defend and befriend those who are being bullied, especially those with special needs. He also explains how those with special needs like to do the same things as typical kids and how easy it is to include them and help them reach their full potential. He will encourage your kids to get to know a special needs kid and provide them with social interaction and opportunities they wouldn’t have had without them.
