Motivational Speaker, David Flood, to Present
"Dignity & Respect: Look on the Inside"
Tuesday, April 7, 2020
6:30 p.m.

The Special Education Program is pleased to bring top motivational youth speaker, David Flood, to Fairfield University for an engaging talk about how our community can be more inclusive. Flood’s humorous and genuine speaking style empowers both youth and adults with social and emotional skills while teaching them the crucial life skills of dignity and respect.

David’s start as a youth speaker comes from personal experience. He grew up impacted by addiction in his family, and his oldest son has autism. He is active in his church, is a hospice volunteer who visits with terminally ill patients, and he is on the board of KIDS Plus, a non-profit organization which helps special needs children through sports and other activities. David attends meetings and participates in activities with The Anti-Bias Consortium for Nassau County Schools. He is also a member of The Northport-East Northport Drug and Alcohol Task Force.
