Ken Routson is an author, speaker, consultant, life coach, workshop facilitator and more. He is nationally recognized for his contributions in developing day programs and residential supports for people with disabilities, as well as for his popular sensitivity-training workshops for schools and social service agencies.
Ken has served as the CEO of several corporations, including a healthcare corporation that specializes in in-home support for people with severe disabilities.
Ken established some of the very first supported-living arrangements in Ohio, and the Butler County Board of DD therefore proclaimed him “Father of Supported Living in Butler County.” For his work in assisting persons with severe disabilities in their moves from nursing homes to “real” homes with appropriate supports, Ken earned the “Pioneer Award” from the Ohio Head Injury Association.
Ken conducts life coaching sessions worldwide, based on his most popular book “Beliefology.” He recently developed Routson and Associates, a consulting company and is often booked for speaking engagements, which he finds amazing considering he was born with speech aphasia and several other severe learning disabilities.

She is a graduate of St. Rita’s School of Nursing in Lima, Ohio; Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio; and the University of Dayton in Dayton, Ohio.
