Twenty years ago, Able Newspaper’s publisher Angela Miele Melledy wondered if there would be enough content about people with disabilities to fill a monthly newspaper. Today, she wonders how she will fit it all. Two hundred and forty issues later, Able Newspaper, based in Old Bethpage, is written for, by and about people with disabilities, is being called “my bible” by people with disabilities.”
Able Newspaper enables people with disabilities to read about people facing the same issues they are and see the possibilities that are out there. It features all the news that pertains to people with disabilities, including a calendar of events, columns written by various experts and a variety of informative articles and is printed in a larger type format for those with visual impairments.
