Before his son Samuel was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, photojournalist Dan Habib rarely thought about the inclusion of people with disabilities. Now he thinks about inclusion every day. Habib’s award-winning documentary film, INCLUDING SAMUEL, honestly chronicles the Habib family’s efforts to include Samuel in every facet of their lives. The documentary also features four other families with varied inclusion experiences, plus interviews with dozens of teachers, young people, parents and disability rights experts. CVS Caremark is proud to support this very important inclusion project.
The guides below are to help you plan screenings of INCLUDING SAMUEL. Included are suggested steps for organizing your screening, publicizing your event, engaging participants in meaningful discussion and action, following up with your audience, and staying involved with the movement to fully include people with disabilities in and outside of school settings.
The toolkit was designed for use in conjunction with the website, www.includingsamuel.com, so you will find links throughout the guide.
