Disable the Label in Your Community

A couple of weeks ago, Mike and I presented on the beautiful campus at Butler University, in Indianapolis, Indiana. The theme for this event? Disable the label. It was an incredible event. Everyone that walked in was encouraged to write a “label” defining themselves and wear it like a name tag. Some of the “labels” […]

Major Incident at United Airlines

  In a world of protests and divisiveness, a pilot leads a group of caring United Staff in a collaborative effort to help the Handicap This Productions Team on and off their plane. That may sound easy or like it’s “no-big deal”, but we are here to tell you that it was an incredible feat. […]

Inclusion, Awareness, and Acceptance

Over the years I have had a front row seat to a special project. It is a project of inclusion, awareness, and acceptance. You could call it Handicap This’ baby brother. It is a fictional story about Hank and Allie authored by the Creative Crusader himself, Denis Berkson, aka Mike’s Dad. Hank is not your […]

Power vs. Manual Wheelchair

I have been asked many times in many different settings why I prefer to use a manual wheelchair vs. a powerchair. Before I answer this question, I should give you a little background about my personal experiences when it comes to the powerchair. For a time, I did use a powerchair because it seemed like […]

Becoming Your Own Self-Advocate

Looking back on my educational career as a student, the subject I had the most difficulty navigating through was math. Often times, I would get frustrated because I knew the answer, but I couldn’t fully explain how I got there. And in math class, the correct “how” is equally as (or sometimes more important) than […]

Time to Make Flying More Accessible

Having had performed our two-man stage show as far west as Los Angeles, CA and as far east as Boston, MA, Mike and I are no strangers to flying. Unfortunately, majority of the time flying is the most challenging part to our trips. The thing is though it doesn’t have to be. Many of the […]

Have an Accepting School You Can Be Proud Of

We all want schools that are accepting and understanding. Unfortunately, that is much easier said than done. Even though our hearts may be in the right place, our minds can often mess it up. Never fear… here are our experiences and tips on how to make that goal of acceptance a reality. (Editor’s Note: In […]

What Your Doctors May Not Be Telling You About Cerebral Palsy

Before we get into it, please recognize that these observations are made solely from my very personal and specific situation.

A Movement Towards Acceptance

A few weeks ago I enjoyed the opportunity to step out from behind the scenes with Handicap This Productions and take center stage, well at least metaphorically. This opportunity I speak about occurred during the 2015 Chicago Abilities Expo, Friday, June 12th through Sunday, June 14th. During that weekend I provided Tim and fellow behind […]

Look Before You Leap

Look Before You Leap By Brian Moore Listen all you people who think you have a PHD in judgement. Don’t view the book by its cover; open it up and discover. What you see is not always what you are going to get. Anyone’s life can be a platform for success. If you do your […]

Speaking Up So Inclusion Thrives

Inclusion starts by placing people together in the same classroom or environment. Emphasize “starts.” After all if the person who uses a mobility device or speaks with a speech impediment goes ignored, what good does the inclusion do? From my experiences living with mild cerebral palsy, I found speaking up can make an inclusive environment […]

Acceptance Through Shared Interests

When talking inclusion a crucial element can easily go overlooked, acceptance. With acceptance inclusion thrives. However, the unknown that often comes along with a disability can make finding acceptance difficult. Perhaps before I continue I should define what I mean by “acceptance.” Acceptance to me means seeing past the diagnosis, mobility device, or whatever differences […]
