I'm Tyler

I truly enjoyed this year's Transition Forum. I attended two awesome sessions this morning as the conference drew to a close. A remarkable young man, Tyler, of Waterloo, Iowa, delivered the closing presentation. He encouraged us to look past a person's disability and help that person discover what he or she CAN do!

Tyler has been a busy young man. He has earned a yellow belt in karate, played percussion in his high school's marching band, performed in plays, and produced a DVD to promote ability awareness. The DVD helped him earn the rank of Eagle Scout. He currently attends his local community college and aspires to be an author, consultant, and motivational speaker. He's on his way.

Visit See for yourself that physical challenges do not have to be barriers to leading full lives. As Tyler says, what a person CAN do is far more important than what a person can't do.
