How to Participate

Anyone who records at StoryCorps can have their recording included in the Disability Visibility Project. The easiest way to schedule your StoryCorps appointment is online. Click here to make an appointment. You can also make an appointment by phone at 800-850-4406.

Be sure to mention the Disability Visibility Project in the Notes section of your online reservation form when making your appointment. Also, please include any accommodations or accessibility needs you might have in the Notes section (e.g., two wheelchair users, bringing an ASL interpreter, using a communication device).

Please note Mobile Tour: the mobile trailer can only fit 1 wheelchair user and one non-wheelchair user. 

For more information about the recording process, please read StoryCorps’ What-to-Expect page and StoryCorps’ Frequently Asked Questions.

Each StoryCorps location is unique, and all StoryCorps’ locations are wheelchair accessible. For questions about the San Francisco StoryBooth contact Geraldine Ah-Sue at 415-557-4211 or gahsue@storycorps.org.

  1. Could someone PLEASE contact me about this? We were already considering a similar project to bring awareness to the plight of kids with disabilities – we wanted to match a recording on storycorp with a picture of the child/family & start a website. I have a pediatric practice in Northwestern North Carolina that pulls kids with chronic illness, medical fragility, developmental delays, school & mental health issues from 6 rural counties. How can I get storycorp to come here? http://www.kidscountpeds.net 336-835-7337. THANKS!!!!

  3. Hi Alice,
    The International Association of Peer Supporters (iNAPS) Annual Conference will be in Atlanta this year on October 13 and 14. Would it be possible for the StoryCorp mobile booth to come to the conference? We anticipate between 400-500 people who are all in recovery from mental health and/or substance use conditions — who have been hired (or volunteer) to help others in discovery of recovery. It would be an amazing opportunity to interview people who have been helping not only other people, but entire systems transform to one that better respects people with these disabilities.

    More about our organization (www.inaops.org). The conference information is at http://inaops.org/2014-national-conference/ and some of the video stories that were recorded in the past http://inaops.org/video-resources/ (scroll down to Philadelphia testimonies).

    1. Hi Rita,
      Thank you so much for your interest in our program! The StoryCorps Mobile Booth plans their tour over a year in advance so they will not be in Atlanta since they have an actual recording booth there. One option is to post something to your meeting attendees ahead of time, encouraging them to make a reservation at the Atlanta StoryCorps location.

      Another option are StoryCorps custom services. For a fee, they will come to events or organizations:

      Would iNAPS like to become a media partner with our project? It would be awesome to have stories from the recovery/mental health community included in the our project. This means you would post something about the project on your website or tweet/post on Facebook for us. We would also give you a shout-out from our website as a thank you. Here’s a link on what’s involved:

      Let me know what you think and thanks again!

      Alice

  4. Will you all be coming to or near the DC area? I would love to participate. I’m a paraplegic & have been a fan of this series.
