Meet Connie Persike, M.S.,CCC/SLP, Our Founder
My older sister has cerebral palsy. She cannot walk and requires 100% care with tasks such as dressing and feeding. Nobody would think to impose punishments on her because of her physical differences, yet we do this to individuals with invisible differences every single day. Changing this is my passion.

“If a child doesn’t know how to read, we teach. If a child doesn’t know how to swim, we teach. If a child doesn’t know how to multiply, we teach. If a child doesn’t know how to drive, we teach. If a child doesn’t know how to behave, we. . . teach? punish?
Why can’t we finish the last sentence as automatically as we do the others?”
