Meet Lydia Dawley
Lydia Dawley has always had a passion for helping people understand that people with disabilities can do anything, but they do things differently. Having Mixed Cerebral Palsy since birth, Lydia had to show people that she had the ability and strength to do the same things as her peers. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater with her Bachelors Degree in Liberal Studies with a speciality in Communication Sciences and Disorders, she opened her own business called Click. Speak. Connect. to mentor to people who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices, and consult with educators and parents to best support their students. She sells her stylus that she created for herself to others with disabilities. Lydia also does public speaking to schools to share her life story to teach empathy and compassion.
