One cup of coffee at a time

Okay, so they’re not a chain and definitely not located in St. Louis but after hearing their story on the Rachel Ray how, I highly recommend them. This from a person who doesn’t drink a lot of coffee.

The coffee shop is called Bitty & Beau’s Coffee and what they do is hire people with intellectual and developmental disabilities or as I like to say, people with special abilities. I know it’s four months away still but, I think I know what my family is getting for Christmas.

Sincerely-

Entrepreneural opportunities abound

What’s the old saying, necessity is the mother of invention? Anyway, this local businessman (who has a son with autism) took that to heart with his project, the Calming Chair. It turns out he has a classroom of students in a high school engineering program help him create it and now it appears it might actually be headed to market.

This according to the article entitled “Calming Chair For Kids On The Spectrum May Be Headed To MarketBy Dugan Arnett at the Kansas City Star via Disability Scoop. Just like the old English proverb.
