Ending the fourth week of my Workability program, there was a guest speaker named Lisa, who is a sophomore attending the U of A with a disability. She explained to us that she has constant back pain and also hears things that other people may not normally hear. However, Lisa had certain accommodations that help her be successful in school. She also applied her college life to what was learned in class this week such as self advocacy, self determination, and self disclosure.
