Krystin Letta

Hi my name is Krystin Letta, I am the Program Director of Campaign D Social Club. Social club is a recreation program for independent adults of all abilities that focuses on socialization, friendship and acceptance. We meet weekly providing an open door in the community to those seeking connection. 

 

As a mom of Autism, I have 28 years of hands on experience of working with individuals on the Autism spectrum. I am passionate about  advocating for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

 

Professionally, I work in the community supporting individuals as a Direct Support Professional.  I work for Heritage Christian Services, Epilepsy Pralid and Person Centered Services.  

Heather Collazo

My name is Heather Collazo, and I am excited to be a Campaign D board member. My background is mainly in the field of special education where I have worked for over 10 years. I have my bachelor’s in special education and at my last teaching position I taught in a setting with students who were medically fragile and had multiple disabilities. I received my master’s degree in education and certification as a teacher of the Visually Impaired at Dominican University of New York.

 

Currently, I teach at Mary Cariola Center as a Teacher of the Visually Impaired. In my personal time I love spending time with my family and participating in events and activities in the community and being outdoors. I have a wonderful husband Joe, and three sons Jose, Luis, and Gabe. Additionally, I enjoy volunteering at Campaign D Social Club where my son Luis has been a member since 2019.

“Just as every human being is unique so is every individual with a disability.” I had come across variations of this quote in my teaching career, and it stuck with me. Essentially it means that it’s important not to generalize a person’s diagnosis and think all those with a specific disability have the same characteristics or attributes. You want to be treated as an individual with respect and dignity and that is how all individuals should be treated regardless of disability. I am so glad to be a part of Campaign D and I hope to help spread the mission and the voices of these great individuals of all abilities!
