Hi. I’m Daniel Freeman, although I prefer to go by Dan. I have been disabled since birth: I have Cerebral Palsy and am deaf in my left ear. Originally from Wheaton, IL, I studied English and Theater at Indiana University-Bloomington during my undergraduate career. I also hold an MS in Counseling and College Student Development from Kansas State University. I am now starting my PhD in Literacy, Culture, and Language Education at Indiana University-Bloomington.

I write about disability: how it is represented in my own life, and its representations in Children’s/ YA Literature, theater, education, and pop culture.
