BEV: The Invisible Sister – Rory Miller Maruschak, author, presenter

Rory’s older sister Bev was born with a severe intellectual disability in 1943, a time when such children were hidden away, many of them in state-run facilities constructed to house people that conventional society deemed defective. Rory wrote BEV: The Invisible Sister to tell about the struggles she and her family faced. Rory will share Bev’s story and discuss the evolution of the care and treatment of the intellectually disabled in the U.S.
