An Interview with Able Radio in the UK

by donnak on July 1, 2015

Able Radio was created to give a voice to people with disabilities. This national station has since expanded into training, forming Able Academy which uses the media environment to develop skills that change its clients’ lives; a video production service Able Media which puts clients in the driving seat, not just commissioning a production, but also taking an active role in every stage, guided by industry professionals. Each has a separate remit, but each also feeds into and supports the others. Able’s commitment to tackling disability issues remains undiminished but has been expanded to encompass other disadvantaged groups. Please take the time to browse all sections on their site; you may be surprised by what you discover!

On May 28, 2015, Emily Gait, a presenter, who identified as being blind, interviewed me about my book Finding Matthew, A Child with Brain Damage, A Young Man with Mental Illness, A Son and Brother with Extraordinary Spirit.
