National Disability Month ends with keynote speaker Tuesday

Megan Fischer

Award-winning author Nelson Lauver will be speaking at Colorado State Tuesday in honor of National Disability Month, which is October.

Lauver was functionally illiterate, meaning unable to read or write for practical purposes, until age 29 as a result of undiagnosed dyslexia.


He will speak from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in Clark A 101 with a reception to be held afterward in the Lory Student Center, Room 300.

Lauver is being brought to CSU by Resources for Disabled Students and the Career Center, among other organizations on campus.
