Nate's Triumph - Presuming Competence and the Fight for Inclusion
Publisher: Nathan Trainor
Nate Trainor, born with Joubert syndrome, could not communicate with words until he was twenty-one. Stuck in a system that prematurely labeled him "profoundly retarded," Nate shares his battles with the public school system to be included, his incredible efforts to prove his intelligence, and the breakthroughs that finally gifted him with words and a voice. His journey proves how one man at a vast disadvantage can prevail in a world that seems hostile or indifferent to him.
