We worked with Annie and her support network to create an e-book that demonstrates this very point.
The listener is walked through the personal story of how Annie lives a highly integrated life filled with friends, family, paid work, volunteering, and a host of meaningful and enjoyable activities.
The book is narrated by Vicki Niswander, the proud mother of Annie and also the Director of the Illinois Association of Microboards and Cooperatives.

Annie is a gift to us. The ability to tell her life story through this new e-book is made possible by a grant funded by the Illinois Council on Developmental Disabilities.
