"We bought the films for our women's studies, community health,
pre-nursing, and diversity studies programs. There are so many uses for
them. Students are fascinated by a glimpse into a world they've not
experienced." – Alice Deakins, Professor at William Paterson University,
New Jersey

Diana Braun has Down Syndrome and Kathy Conour has Cerebral Palsy and is
non-verbal. The two women met at a sheltered workshop in Illinois three
decades ago and vowed to live independent, non-institutionalized lives

capability. This award-winning documentary was most recently the foundation
of a new online course launched by the College of Direct Support, called "Film
for Thought<>
