We have witnessed so many inspiring stories of people with disabilities and special needs who have lived their lives a lot better than most abled people around us. They continue to inspire the many people they encounter each day and with their struggles to keep up and live as examples that despite their condition, it has never been a road block to keep them from bringing out the best in them and enriching their lives and the people around them.

Jeff Berwick is just one of the many living proof that a physical disability is not a hindrance to live productively as part of the society and to nurture a family. Jeff has lost his sense of sight at age 13 but you cannot see him despair over his physical disability.

Watch him throughout his daily grind and how we triumphs over the challenges of his physical condition.


Jeff is just one of the many people taking advantage of the services provided by Accessible Media, a non-profit multimedia organization operating two broadcast services, VoicePrint and The Accessible Channel – TACtv, and a companion website (http://www.ami.ca).

AMI serves more than five million Canadians who are visually impaired or blind, print-restricted, deaf or hearing impaired, learning disabled, mobility impaired, or those in need of literacy skills or learning English as a second language, by making print, broadcast and online media accessible.

The next time we see people like Jeff, let’s ask ourselves, if this man’s disability does not make him any less of a better person, what can I do to make mine like him?
