Lauren's Creed: Wings to Fly
‘Lauren’s Creed: Wings to Fly’ is about living with disability, about daring to believe, about supporting others who sail the same boat, it’s about celebrating individual difference, it’s about perspective and it’s about being happy living in one’s own skin – about how we all have our strengths and weaknesses.
Dianne Winbanks (M.Ed) has studied extensively and educated students in a range of settings since starting her teaching career in 1986. Yet nothing prepared her for the learning curve that was required upon the birth of her twins, in 1995, one of whom was later diagnosed with autism and an intellectual disability.
