Instructor Bio

My experience has been that when it comes to interacting with people who have disabilities, most of us want to do the right thing, we just don’t know what the right thing is. No matter what the current mores may be, dictated to us by the dominating political correctness culture, the right thing in my view is to treat one another with dignity and respect. I strive to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities by educating those with whom they interact. In America, we are about to usher in a new era of disease and disability, and our society is woefully unprepared for this growing demographic.

My life’s work is to lend my voice to those who have no voice of their own.

Laura Legendary is an award-winning speaker and is a vocal advocate for people with disabilities. She travels extensively presenting content on the Americans with Disabilities act, workplace issues and hiring practices, assistive technologies, and disability awareness and communication.

As an educator, Laura has authored course curricula and student handbooks certified by the State of Washington as best practices training for in-home health care providers. For over ten years, she has educated thousands of home care workers to help them more effectively interact with their clients who are elderly or disabled. Appearing before audiences ranging from corporate professionals to community leaders and non-profit groups, Laura’s presentation style has earned her the moniker “The Eloquent Advocate”.

Ms. Legendary has been featured in both local newspapers and business journals for her leadership and community service. Her articles have appeared in dozens of online and print publications around the world, including Stitches Magazine, Toastmasters International Magazine, Guide Dogs for the Blind News, Diversity World Magazine and the University of Oregon to name a few. She has also served as a volunteer on ADA advisory committees for Area Agencies on Aging and the local transit authority.

Ms. Legendary was educated at California State University, Northridge, and mastered the Vocational Independence Program at the Blind Foundation of America in Los Angeles, California. A Southern California native, Laura now resides in central Washington State.

Disability is not a ‘brave struggle’ or ‘courage in the face of adversity’…Disability is an art. It’s an ingenious way to live.
