Join Braille Works at Family Cafe 2015Published on
Lou Fioritto Presenting at Florida’s 17th Annual Family Cafe
Braille Works co-founder Lou Fioritto and his daughter Christine Sket will be hosting a session for parents and caregivers at Florida’s Family Café on Friday, June 5th 4:30-5:30pm. Raising a Child Based on Their Abilities Versus Their Disability.
Lou has been blind since birth. His parents taught him to focus on his strengths versus his weaknesses and how to turn a perceived weakness into strength. He and his wife, Joyce, founded Braille Works 21 years ago and now employ approximately 100 people. Lou attributes much of his successes to his parents who allowed him to explore without the fear of failure. Lou will share his upbringing, and advice with parents of children with disabilities.
Christine Sket is an ADA advocate, and a parent of children who have unique abilities. She credits her advocacy voice and parenting style to being raised by parents who are blind. She was able to see the world, and people from a different perspective. Christine encourages parents to focus on their children’s strengths, and teaches them how to overcome the hurdles that bring the focus back to the inabilities. Christine also consults for Braille Works on ADA laws, policy changes and document compliance.
Family Café is entering their 17th year and is scheduled for June 5-7, 2015 at the Caribe Royale in Orlando, Florida. The three-day event provides a venue for people with disabilities and their families to learn about available services, connect with policy makers, and network with each other. [Learn more]
