From My Perspective
OCALI Family & Community Outreach Center’s podcast
Hear from people with disabilities, their families, friends, coworkers and neighbors. You’ll hear about everyday life, passions, interests, opinions. You’ll be inspired, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry (or at least we did), but more importantly you’ll better understand what life is like…from our perspective. Click here for transcript.
Here you'll find what OCALI staff and Advisory Board members are reading, watching and listening to, and what they have to say on a number of topics.
Staff Picks Featuring Chloe Rothschild
Chloe Rothschild serves on the Ocali Advisory Board, and is a self advocate and young adult with Autism. Two of Chloe’s top picks are anything on Interoception ( its interesting and in my opinion helps explain so much). And Special Books by Special Kids. She has loved watching these videos and recently met and was interviewed by Mr. Chris.
