About the Author:


Margo Vreeburg Izzo, Ph.D., is Program Director for Transition Services at The Ohio State University Nisonger Center.

Dr. Vreeburg Izzo has developed educational curricula for students with disabilities; conducted numerous trainings, focus groups, and interviews with teachers and students; managed the development of web sites, videos, and other dissemination products; and published more than 35 peer-reviewed articles, books, or book chapters on disability and transition issues.

She also is a mother, wife, grant writer, and a person with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

LeDerick Horne, labeled as neurologically impaired in third grade, defies any and all labels. He is a dynamic spoken-word poet, a tireless advocate for all people with disabilities, an inspiring motivational speaker, a bridge builder between learners and leaders across the United States and around the word, and an African American husband and father who serves as a role model for all races, genders, and generations. LeDerick is the grandson of one of New Jersey's most prominent civil rights leaders and uses his gift for spoken-word poetry as the gateway to larger discussions on equal opportunity, pride, selfdetermination, and hope for people with disabilities. His workshops, keynote speeches, and performances reach thousands of students, teachers, legislators, policy makers, business leaders, and service providers each year. He regularly addresses an array of academic, government, social, and business groups and has had appearances at the White House, the United Nations, Harvard University, the National Association of State Directors of Special Education, and the Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Nevada, and Alabama State Departments of Education. His work addresses the challenges of all disabilities, uniting the efforts of diverse groups in order to achieve substantive, systemic change. Go to www.lederick.com to learn more about LeDerick and his work.



Bill Bauer, Ph.D. is a Professor of Education at Marietta College, a small rural liberal arts school located in the rolling hills of southern Appalachian, Ohio. Bill has a sensorineural bilateral hearing loss, yet a severe hearing impairment has not held him back. He was a former elementary school teacher, school principal, and superintendent. His Ph.D. is in rehabilitation counseling, and he has a private practice at a local hospital and serves as a consultant to many disability-related organizations regarding transition and lifespan development. He completed post-doctoral work at the Ohio State University Nisonger Center and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the People First Association. Bill contributed greatly to this book's final chapter, as it incorporates his many years of experience in working with youth, adults, and families with hidden disabilities as well as physical disabilities, sensory impairments, and mental health conditions.
