About the Event
The Goodnow Library Foundation invites you to a Be Bold event on Tuesday, Oct 12 @ 7pm!
Join us to welcome local resident Rob DeLena and his son, Ryan, as they share stories and discuss their book, Without Restraint: How Skiing Saved My Son’s Life. Overloaded with neuropsych evaluations and testing to identify his atypical behaviors and interests, Ryan was bounced between educational programs and schools. But, due to an impulsive decision to take Ryan skiing, Rob and his wife Mary Beth discovered a different child than the version experts were so sure about. They began to question the path laid for their son by the professionals paid to judge him. Together they fought the medical and educational complexes over Ryan’s care and school placement, and instead fostered the freedom Ryan needed to pursue his dream of becoming a professional ski mountaineer.
This will be a hybrid event (livestreaming via Facebook Live).
