The author of this blog, Leann Reid, has a Masters’ Degree in Special Education from Kansas State University. After 16 years of advocating and teaching young people with various disabilities, she needed to retire due to her own physical and communication difficulties. Ms. Reid was formally diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, an auto-immune disease that slowly damages the brain and spinal cord, in 2002.
It is her desire to continue using her knowledge, experience, and understanding to continue advocating for persons of all ages who are fighting conditions or diseases that are difficult to explain to loved-ones. May you find the information on this blog helpful.
