The Camera’s Eye: Telling the Story of Disability through the Power of Film

June 3 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Event Navigation

Before his son Samuel Habib was diagnosed with a disability at age 1, Dan Habib rarely thought about the inclusion of people with disabilities. Since then, he and his family have advocated for Samuel’s inclusion nearly every day – in their schools, city, college, and even in their extended family.

Samuel (24), who was featured in his father Dan’s seminal 2008 film “Including Samuel,” is now leading the advocacy charge for his own life.

Samuel and Dan will share several films – including their Emmy Award Winning film, My Disability Roadmap – and discuss their strategies for creating a culture of inclusion in the family, school district, and community, and plan for a full adult life. Their films vividly document inclusive practices such as universal design for learning, assistive technology, positive behavioral supports, family engagement, youth leadership, and cultural responsiveness.

Captioned and ASL interpretation will be provided for this webinar. Please email info@wpdhac.org if you require any additional accommodations.
