Though sometimes difficult to answer, Chris Ulmer asks this question to nearly everyone he interviews. Ulmer, a special education teacher turned an internationally renowned speaker, travels the globe interviewing people with disabilities. His goal is to not tell their stories, but to give them the opportunity to tell their story themselves.
In the past two years, Ulmer and his nonprofit, Special Books by Special Kids, have gained notoriety. Featured on ABC, BBC, Google, and with over a million followers on Facebook, Ulmer seeks “to normalize the diversity of the human condition under the pillars of honesty, respect, mindfulness, positivity and collaboration.” SBSK website: www.specialbooksbyspecialkids.org/about-us
“There is good in the world and there is a loving place for everyone.” says Ulmer. Northwest Center strives to provide such a place. This year marks the 17th Annual Golden Hearts Luncheon. Our business partners, employees, and valued friends will join us as we celebrate our history while sharing our vision for the future and welcome Chris Ulmer as our keynote speaker. We hope you, as one of our valued friends, will join us on October 6th.
Northwest Center is a leader in inclusion every step of the way. We believe everyone deserves not only a seat at the table but a voice in the conversation. Our mission is to promote the growth, development and independence of people with disabilities through programs of therapy, education and work opportunity.
