On this week’s episode co-hosts Mike Berkson and Tim Wambach experiment with something different. A first for the Handicap This Podcast! Click play to hear Mike and Tim welcome not just a guest but a special guest co-host.
That’s right! Author, advocate, and Handicap This Productions’ own Vice-President of Outreach Zach Fenell joins Mike and Tim to talk high school inclusion! With their varying cerebral palsy (Mike’s severe and Zach’s much milder) plus Tim’s viewpoint as Mike’s former one-on-one classroom aide the mood remains set for a comprehensive discussion. Listen in to learn how Mike’s “virtually no movement” and Zach’s “a lot of awkward movement” impacted their high school careers.
Mike and Zach’s reflections on their respective high school experiences lead to some new perspectives. Mike’s take on what Zach shares about his freshman year will leave you laughing! Jokes aside however, you know a conversation triggering new perspectives proves powerful. In fact you might catch yourself drawing parallels to your own high school memories. Only one way to find out though, tune in!
Towards the episode’s end Zach hypotheses about one classroom tool available today which he believes would’ve made his time in high school better. Educators you will want to listen in simply for this!
