great films featuring people with IDD


I think you will be interested in these films about people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. They are truly wonderful.

     *   My Shriver Center colleague, Emily Lauer<>, brought this film series to my attention. About it, she said, "This non-profit was started by a special education teacher.  It supports a multimedia campaign to normalize the diversity of the human condition.  In the media, the founder interviews individuals with neurodiversity of all kinds and their families in a very endearing and personalized way. It's a great set of media to help educate and build awareness and to help break down social barriers.   They're really fantastic - I encourage you to check them out."
     *   It's website bills it as "THE ILLUSION OF NORMAL. THE BEAUTY OF LOVE."
