Beginning with Bong
Enter the world of six kids and forget the medical labels of cerebral palsy, spina bifida, arthrogryposis, spinal cord injury and muscular dystrophy. Ages 8-14, each one has a different story to tell about their life and education in the mainstream. Bong focuses his talents on getting into trouble with his 3rd grade teacher to win points with his classmates. Suzy is hoping to be a rock singer and Sarah’s trying to overcome her shyness. Russell, already in junior high school, is taking his work seriously and Dan is learning to fight hard for everything he wants.
All of them are looking for friends, even Dusty who thrills his school friends by doing incredible things with his power wheelchair using his mouth to direct it. Excellent for disability awareness programs, the kids who share a day in their life in this documentary remind us that we each have unique personalities, our own personal dreams, and our ways of defining the journey of life and the challenges we face.
Appropriate for school programs and for students in education, physical therapy and occupational therapy programs.
