Jill is a special education teacher who works with children. She knows that disabilities do not automatically preclude people from reaching their potential-especially since she herself has a physical disability.
People with disabilities are often regarded only in terms of what they can't do, not what they can do.
This program looks at a variety of individuals with different disabilities who not only participate in their work and community but thrive because they were given an opportunity.
In this video, social workers, special education teachers, employers, and those challenged by ailment or accident discuss society's preconceptions and how, when given the chance, people rise to the challenges of life.
