Exploring the Disability Experience

Duration: 22:58

Books about teens who are living with disability highlight the courage and emotional strength that disabled people can summon. They also challenge us to reflect on how we treat disabled people in our own lives. Tune in to hear about young people who are coping with birth defects and cerebral palsy; autism, schizophrenia, and obsessive compulsive disorder; speech impediments and traumatic war injuries. Reading their stories will lead teens to new conversations, new sensitivity, and new awareness.
