The following are a collection of stories of healthcare experiences told from the perspective of a person with a disability or recounted by parents, family members, clinicians or advocates.  These experiences/observations reinforce the gaps in health care that demonstrate how the needs of the person are not met due to lack of staff training/education.We rejoice when we hear stories of successful healthcare encounters, where staff have gained experience/education, resulting in providing the communication and care that successfully met the the needs of the patient.
