Hear Me! People with Developmental Disabilities Speak Out

Cover photo of HEAR ME! video

An incredible collection of inspirational stories….

Seven people with varying developmental disabilities came together in a studio one day in Reno, Nevada for a powerful, uncensored and in-depth conversation about their lives, their experiences and their dreams for the future. Join Jacob, Ian, Kailin, Russell, Jonah, Stephen and Santa as they share the stigmas they encounter every day, their key relationships, their experiences with education, and their unique pathways to employment. The conversation centers on three core issues:
1. How to act when you meet me
2. Things we are tired of hearing
3. What we want the world to know

As we listen to these stories, we realize that we are far more alike than different. Everyone—including those of us with developmental disabilities—dreams of a bright future.
