USD Disability Services welcomes motivational speaker Bill Deering
Deering has presented about living with his disability to thousands of junior high, high school and college students. His presentation focuses on how he overcame obstacles, broke barriers and how people with various abilities can work through their own limitations in life. On his website http://stuttering-disability-motivational-speaker.com, Deering highlights that his stuttering was so severe it used to take him more than three minutes to say his name, an additional three minutes merely to answer the phone (he didn’t start using the phone until he was 21). The intent of the program is to leave the audience feeling empowered, inspired and ready to face their own personal challenges with a new sense of possibility. A photograph of Deering is available for download at www.usd.edu/press/news/images/releases/Bill_Deering.jpg.
The presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Disability Services at (605) 677-6389 or visit www.usd.edu/disabilityservices.
