Disabling Disability Segregation: Dan Habib at TED Talks - video

as posted by Tedx Talks ....

Published on Apr 22, 2014
Photojournalist Dan Habib didn't give much thought to disability — until his son Samuel was born with cerebral palsy. In this emotional talk, the disability-rights advocate explains his family's fight to ensure an inclusive education for Samuel, and how inclusion benefits not just Samuel and those who are included, but all of us.

Dan Habib is the director, producer and cinematographer of the Emmy-nominated documentary, Including Samuel. Habib's second film, Who Cares About Kelsey?, documents the lives of students with emotional and behavioral disabilities, and shows innovative educational approaches that help these students to succeed—while improving the overall school culture and climate.

TEDxAmoskeagMillyard 2013 was hosted by Southern New Hampshire University on November 2, 2013. The theme was MINDSET, the mental attitudes that impact our choices and actions, ultimately influencing our results. From conquering fear to changing perspectives, we explored the many ways outlook, emotions, and beliefs affect our mindset. We also investigated how the mindset we cultivate shapes our path, impacts our organizations, and has the potential to transform our communities.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
