Living Meaningfully while Earning a Living
Murphy, Patti
Exceptional Parent, v41 n4 p30-31 Apr 2011
This article profiles Joseph Jerome "Joe" Steffy, who has autism, and describes how he uses his augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device on the job (a successful business selling his Kettle Korn at festivals). There is more to Joe's story than his autism, Down syndrome, and epilepsy. It is also about resourcefulness, family and faith--values instilled in Joe and his four older siblings while growing up on an Iowa farm. Individuals of all abilities and backgrounds can draw inspiration from Joe's work ethic. He affirms that people with complex challenges can reach, touch and find a place in the world.
