Detail For Show: Surviving Everyday

Show Description:

"Surviving Everyday" is Produced by Leslie Pavia of Pavia Productions at PAT, (Peabody Access Telecommunications, Inc.), and Jeffrey Geibel, Technical Director for the show. The show addresses acquired disabilities that usually present what seem to be insurmountable obstacles for most people and their caregivers.

Surviving Everyday interviews the survivors of life-changing events. The interviews present the coping strategies that survivors have adopted - which allow them to enjoy their life no matter what their circumstances might be. Surviving Everyday also provides the perspective of how the world is viewed through the eyes of those who are disabled.

These shows are designed to give HOPE to those individuals who may be living these events themselves and also teaches the family member, friend, or caregiver how to give proper support to their loved one. It also coaches viewers on the language to use that helps the disabled, and behavior to be avoided when interacting with someone in these circumstances.

Having been a stroke survivor herself, Producer Leslie Pavia is living proof that people with disabilities can have a beneficial life, enjoy the body they live in and contribute by adding value to the community. This series will raise the awareness of many viewers who do not routinely interact with people with disabilities and connect people with disabilities to the right organizations that will help them reach their highest potential. By personal experiences, it demonstrates what can be achieved with some empathy, effort, and support by others.
