Student Disability Services will be sponsor a screening of the documentary "Including Samuel." A discussion on inclusion and aiding individuals with disabilities in an educational setting led by Student Disability Services staff wil follow the screening. The film is from the perspective of a father whose son Samuel has cerebral palsy. Here is a short description of the film:
Before his son Samuel was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, photojournalist Dan Habib rarely thought about the educational inclusion of people with disabilities. Now he thinks about inclusion every day. Shot and produced over four years, this award-winning documentary chronicles the Habib family's efforts to include Samuel in every facet of their lives. The film also features four other families with varied inclusion experiences, plus interviews with dozens of teachers, young people, parents and disability rights experts. "Including Samuel" is a highly personal, passionately photographed film that captures the cultural and systemic barriers to inclusion in schools.
