The Nebraska Association of Service Providers is working with Nebraska Educational Television to create a storytelling television special for people with developmental disabilities.

Who is this project for? 

This opportunity is for:
– People with developmental disabilities only.
– It is okay if you want to tell your story yourself or tell your story with a staff member, friend, or another person.
– All kinds of people and stories are welcome, including people who have difficulty talking, use a communication device, or communicate with help.
– We encourage all kinds of people with all kinds of stories to tell to apply, including people with diverse ethnic, gender, religious, or other backgrounds.
