Creating a Life for Jackson

 A TEDx Talk – by Sally Richards: Creating A Life for Jackson

The ‘ordinary doing the extraordinary.’

As the mother of four boys, you’d think Sally Richards has enough on her hands. But one of those boys, Jack­son, is dis­abled, and needs full time support.

Sally could have gone the road that many do and engaged in what she terms “com­pet­i­tive mis­ery” where the per­son most in need and most mis­er­able gets gov­ern­ment and dis­abil­ity sec­tor sup­port. Instead, she chose to cre­ate what she calls “a mean­ing­ful life” for Jackson.

This is her (and Jackson’s) story.
