APSE Conversations: Keynote Emily Ladau￼
Emily Ladau is a passionate disability rights activist, writer, storyteller, and digital communications consultant whose career began at the age of 10 when she appeared on several episodes of Sesame Street to educate kids about life with a physical disability.
She is the Editor in Chief of the Rooted in Rights Blog, co-host of The Accessible Stall Podcast, and author of Demystifying Disability: What to Know, What to Say, and How to be an Ally, published by Ten Speed Press, an imprint of Penguin Random House. The book is an approachable guide to being a thoughtful, informed ally to disabled people, with actionable steps for what to say and do (and what not to do) and how you can help make the world a more inclusive place. All of Emily’s activism is driven by her belief that it is by sharing our stories and making the disability experience accessible to the world that we will reach a world that is accessible to the disability community.
