" In this episode of the “Outrageous and Vulnerable Podcast”, Cynthia Coupe interviews Frank Menhams. Frank is a social worker and long time disability rights advocate. Frank details his experience working with students and families as they set up IEPs (Individualized Education Plan) and the importance of disability advocacy during this process, especially from the students involved.
