Keynote Presenter-PATINS State Conference
Last week the ICAM Dispatch featured Kathleen H. McClaskey, with a story she had written about her son, who struggled with Dyslexia throughout his school years in public and private schools. That story had a happy ending, and we are anticipating Ms. McCaskey’s keynote address so we can hear more of the story.
At the PATINS State Conference this year, there will be two Keynote Speakers. Please join us in welcoming “America’s Favorite Hearing Impaired Comedienne, Actress, Motivational Speaker and Humanitarian.” Visit her web site to learn more of her incredible story:
Kathy was born with a hearing loss that went undetected until she was eight, and led to believe she was mentally retarded. She was sexually abused, run over by a jeep, and stricken with cancer, all before the age of thirty. Rather than be consumed by grief, she sought the light of laughter. Kathy Buckley not only survived, she went on to become a top female comic, and the award winning author of a one-woman show, PBS special and book. She is also a beloved motivational speaker in demand for organizations including Anthony Robbin’s Life Mastery, numerous Fortune 500 companies, governmental agencies, and many others.
In one of her many special projects, Kathy was the focus of I Can Hear the Laughter, a 1991 Emmy award-winning documentary, and although she regularly receives national media attention, Kathy Buckley is more than just a popular comic. Her humor has a higher purpose. “My comedy disarms people,” says Kathy. “I love to make people laugh, but I love it even more if I can teach them something at the same time.”
She backs her philosophy by tirelessly performing on behalf of nonprofit and educational organizations such as The MDA Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon, Children’s Hospitals, and the Children’s Miracle Network Telethon, and numerous other causes. Kathy works to entertain and enlighten people of all ages but her heart belongs to children. “Every child deserves to have a real childhood,” Kathy asserts. “And they should have healthy role models to show them that people do care about them deeply.”
Whether performing in a comedy club, guesting on television, speaking publicly, teaching at camps for the deaf, or appearing in any number of other settings, Kathy Buckley bears her message that anything can be achieved when the heart and the mind work together.
In addition to two exciting Keynote Speakers, the PATINS State Conference will provide two exciting days filled with practical and pertinent information on a range of topics, presented by professionals in the fields of Assistive Technology and Accessible Instructional Materials, including PATINS staff, Indiana DRMs and other school personnel and national leaders in AIM and AT. Please review the Conference Presentation Schedule and you won’t want to miss this relevent program.
Thanks so much!
