Prove The power of positive thinking through the Alvin Law Experience!
Alvin is a unique individual because he is able to connect with students and staff. He grabs your attention right away with his feet (because he has no arms). He is one of the best speakers in Canada for school audiences.
In 1981, Alvin Law officially started speaking to schools and organizations throughout Canada. Unofficially, he started his speaking career as a young child when he was encouraged by his parents to explain to others “what happened to you?” Today Alvin is one of Canada’s most highly-sought after inspirational speakers and travels throughout Canada, the US and around the world.
To say Alvin Law is disabled wouldn’t offend him or be inaccurate; after all he was born without arms due to the infamous morning sickness drug, Thalidomide. Today, he is completely independent and most often is described as “amazing”, as opposed to “disabled”. People often assume his program must be yet another example of a “Handicapped Speaker”. These kinds of perceptions and labels have actually been Alvin’s biggest obstacles. If you consider he was born this way, perhaps you can also consider he was born completely “normal”…to him!
