This presentation will definitely fall under the "inspiring" category.
Russ has been teaching individuals with special needs for 10 years and recently resigned to start his own business called Gifted Fitness. His mission is to provide training and exercise programs to those with special needs and their families. One of his clients (Michael) speaks through a computer and they would both be talking about how everyone has obstacles and everyone experiences challenges. Special needs or not, you can overcome anything with the right attitude and mentality. 
Should be a GREAT presentation.

Their work includes adoption and adoption support servicestherapeutic foster care for vulnerable children, child care and early education, drug and alcohol abuse education and prevention, eldercare, and strengthening the community through educational programs and workshops. Each of these services makes a profound and lasting difference in people’s lives.

While placing children for adoption is still one of their core commitments, they have evolved to keep pace with a changing world. The needs of the children they treat have changed dramatically during the last several years. Today, they come having suffered from more severe physical and emotional abuse and neglect, and having had less basic care from their families. Many of the children have serious behavioral and mental health issues, as well as social and learning challenges. As a result, they need more specialized treatment while living in the agency’s therapeutic or family foster homes to help them start to heal. The agency’s goal is to help them move on to a loving adoptive family, or live independently with a job and a home to call their own.
