Special Film on Youth with Disabilities

We will offer a special showing of the award-winning documentary film Including Samuel on Tuesday, November 30 at 7:00 PM.  Including Samuel examines the educational and social inclusion of youth with disabilities. Based on one family's efforts to include their 8-year old son Samuel in all facets of their lives, the film also features the varied experiences of four other families along with interviews with teachers, parents, students, and disability rights experts. The film is 58 minutes long and will be followed by a discussion. This program is for parents, teachers, and caregivers only.  Thank you to the Friends of the Glencoe Public Library for funding this program.
