Taking the “Dis” out of Disability

October 8, 2019 @ 6:00 pm

Georgian Court University Gate

Speaker: Dr. Paul Wichansky
Tuesday, October 8th, 2019
6:00 – 7:15 pm
The Little Theater

Paul Stuart WichanskyPaul Stuart Wichansky, Ph.D, was born with cerebral palsy and a hearing loss. Recognizing that these disabilities are gifts in disguise, Paul has worked hard to transform these obstacles into unique opportunities for self-improvement, and delights in showing others how they can also do the same.

Since he was 10 years old, Paul has hosted motivational programs where he shares valuable insights that have allowed him to triumph over cerebral palsy, earn a doctorate, and lead a productive, confident life in the face of adversity. “Dr. Paul,” as he is popularly known among family and friends, shares those experiences that have allowed him to reach a simple dream he had many years ago — to be able to walk. His uplifting stories with humor are designed to help instill the hope, energy, and inspiration that motivates his audiences to realize their own goals and dreams. At the same time, he emphasizes that it’s perfectly ok to be different; our differences should always be celebrated rather than ridiculed.

Hosted by: Student Life and Engagement and The Academic Development and Support Center (ADSC)
