“As a community resident and a member of the LACD, I had the opportunity to be the keynote speaker at last year‘s Ability Expo. I was impressed with the participants and the vendors and how well everybody responded to the families with special needs,” said Bruce Freeman, a Livingston resident, author/columnist/entrepreneur and college professor who spoke on “Turning Adversity into Opportunity” at last year’s event.

Lisa Capone-Steiger, assistant superintendent of Student Services for Livingston Public Schools, noted that months of planning go into the Abilities Expo, which she describes as “a powerful opportunity for families of children and adults with disabilities to find resources; collaborate with professionals in the field; and explore the many supports available in and around our community.”

“This has been a dream of mine for decades. I am truly grateful to the LACD and the staff in LPS for the commitment of their time, creativity and energy in making this dream a reality,” she said.

Those who attend the event are encouraged to share their photos with the hashtag: #LIVEXPO2018!
