Nathan Slachter

My name is Nathan, I’m currently 27 and living in Queensland with my wife. I was born 5 months premature which caused severe cerebral palsy. As a result I did not talk till the age of 3 or meet most childhood milestones at the average age. I have had to overcome many obstacles over my life but it is the faith and trust in my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ that I have been able to accomplish all that I have so far.

My aim as a speaker is to increase society’s acceptance of those with disabilities, advocate for better services and create a more accessible future. I believe it’s important for others to know that those of us with disabilities are just like everyone else, we just may need a little more understanding and care. My biggest achievement was meeting and marrying the love of my life, Kerryanne, and we hope to someday start a family of our own. As for now we enjoy spending time together and working together with Speakers Bank.
