Since 2002, the weekly column Disabilities has been published in more than 270 newspapers and been the nation's best-read weekly column about people with disabilities. It is sent free to newspapers due to support from Blue Valley Sod of Winnebago, Minnesota. The column features the real-life stories of people with physical, mental, intellectual, and learning disabilities. Daniel J. Vance was editor of Connect Business Magazine from 1996-2015. He is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. He and his wife have a college-graduate daughter with spina bifida.
