Photojournalist Dan Habib didn't give much thought to disability — until his son Samuel was born with cerebral palsy.
In this emotional talk, the disability-rights advocate explains his family's fight to ensure an inclusive education for Samuel, and how inclusion benefits not just Samuel and those who are included, but all of us.
Dan Habib is the director, producer and cinematographer of the Emmy-nominated documentary, Including Samuel.
Habib's second film, Who Cares About Kelsey?, documents the lives of students with emotional and behavioral disabilities, and shows innovative educational approaches that help these students to succeed—while improving the overall school culture and climate.
About TEDx AmoskeagMillyard
TEDxAmoskeagMillyard 2013 was hosted by Southern New Hampshire University on November 2, 2013. The theme was MINDSET, the mental attitudes that impact our choices and actions, ultimately influencing our results. From conquering fear to changing perspectives, we explored the many ways outlook, emotions, and beliefs affect our mindset.
We also investigated how the mindset we cultivate shapes our path, impacts our organizations, and has the potential to transform our communities. Learn more: http://tedxamoskeagmillyard.org
