AAPD MEMBER PROFILE.

AAPD and Technology: A Powerful Combination.

PHOTO: Edward Janus

Edward Janus is Deaf. He’s a double amputee. He also has cerebral palsy. He is a widower with one daughter and does not leave his house in Northlake, Illinois.

Edward Janus is also a prolific and passionate activist who wants to make sure his voice and the voices of others with disabilities are heard around the world.

Janus, who has been an AAPD member since 2007, loves the technology that allows him to live life fully and pursue his passion for helping people with disabilities without leaving home. Like many, he uses the Internet to conduct banking and shopping, but he also views the Internet as “the equalizer.” Using a computer with an on-screen keyboard that enables him to type with mouse clicks, Janus shares an extensive store of helpful web links and resources through a website he created called Disability Network Connections found at www.edwardjanus.net. He also is a prolific blogger that you can follow at www.edwardjanus.net/FeaturedBlogsEdwardJanusDisability AdvocateandActivist.aspx

He regularly advocates for himself and others through chatting, posting letters, signing petitions, answering surveys and taking polls all online. He takes advantage of LinkedIn, Facebook, MySpace and Twitter to stay connected.

Janus sends this message to readers of his website: “With the help of good people like you, doing small actions that you can take, every day, we will make this world a better place for all of us. And if you ‘forward’ actions so others can help with taking actions, this spreads and multiplies.” He recently shared his website and pursuits with his home-visit doctor, who told Janus he was inspired to become more active about legislative issues for people with disabilities.

AAPD is important to Janus “because it has the power to change laws and really do good for people. I believe people working together can make changes and everyone’s voice is important. Also, membership in AAPD has inspired me to not get discouraged and to keep on fighting.”
