University of Virginia Special Education Class – Virtual Talk – October 18, 2017
“For Kyle and Emily, it’s all about being genuine. From our first correspondence to when they left our conference, the positive and close communication allowed them to craft a keynote address that was authentic, uplifting, and relatable. Their unique ability to embrace the crowd, tell stories, and find connections to the lives in front of them make them an exceptional speaking duo! Kyle and Emily also extended their stay in order to be able to engage with our attendees face-to-face before and after their keynote address, which allowed many to build familiarity and start connections that will last beyond our event.
If you are looking for a distinctive, authentic experience, I would highly recommend reaching out to Kyle and Emily. Their approachable, friendly back-and-forth style of dialogue is both entertaining and informative as they weave their experiences into actionable tips for the crowd.”
-Jesse Rodriguez, Coordinator, Region 5 Virginia Department of Education Training and Technical Assistance Center at James Madison University
“Emily and Kyle each bring a fresh, first-person perspective to conversations about disability issues and each episode of the Accessible Stall is both entertaining and deeply thought-provoking. After listening as a fan, I decided to incorporate several episodes into my undergraduate course on exceptional learners this semester. Thoughtful conversation, points of disagreement, and friendly debate between the hosts highlight the complexity of disability issues out in the real world and provided excellent entry-points into several class discussions.
I asked Emily and Kyle to guest lecture after my class had listened to several episodes of The Accessible Stall. The lecture gave my students an opportunity to join in on the conversation and connect some of their in-class learning to Emily and Kyle’s experiences. Emily and Kyle were engaging, thoughtful, and made students feel comfortable about asking questions. Their guest lecture was truly a highlight of the semester.”

“I really enjoyed having the opportunity to have Emily and Kyle join our class for the evening through Skype. After listening to a few of their podcasts, it was really cool to get to interact with them, ask them questions and hear their thoughts about a variety of topics. They had lots of really insightful things to say, and our conversation has given me a lot of food for thought on the topic of disability and related issues. I definitely plan on going back and listening to their old podcasts that I haven’t listened to yet, as well as keeping up with the new ones they put out. Thanks Emily and Kyle!”
