“We have a lot of fun together, you know, for someone whose non-verbal he certainly knows how to express his emotions.”
Graynle Edwards, PhD, talking about his son Graynle Jr.
Graynle Edwards, PhD has a long and distinguished career as an educator. As a parent of a son with an Intellectual Disability, however, Dr. Edwards has had to transcend his role as teacher and become a student of sorts. For more than fifty years, Dr. Edwards has learned to navigate systems, influence policy, and find ways to include his son in the community. He has also gained valuable insights into the types of supports that families, particularly fathers, need today.
We’re very pleased to include our conversation with Dr. Graynle Edwards in the Visionary Voices collection.
