Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability, Making Change Media
In this first-of-its-kind collaboration between a veteran filmmaker and a non-speaking autistic, "Deej" challenges misconceptions of what an alternatively communicating autistic can do. As one of only two non-speaking autistics included in regular education from kindergarten through college graduation, DJ expands our understanding of what full inclusion entails and the possibilities it offers to everyone. Panel discussion to follow.
