Persons with disabilities are NOT excluded from ....

"the general education system on the basis of disability, and that children with disabilities are not excluded from free and compulsory primary education, or from secondary education, on the basis of disability"

Dan Habib, Filmmaker, USA: "That's the power of youth."

Dan Habib, USA: "I'm excited to share this new video with you, IMPACT: Including Samuel - The Power of Youth. The eight-minute video is presented by the non-profit organization Working Films and The Fledgling Fund, and directed by Jeremy Levine of Transient Pictures. 

"Including Samuel - The Power of Youth" brings you behind the scenes of the 2010 Youth Inclusion Summit, inspired and co-organized by the Including Samuel Project.

Twenty teens from around the country converged on Washington, D.C. for the summit and created "I am Norm," a national youth-led campaign promoting the acceptance, respect and full inclusion of youth with disabilities in schools and communities. To learn how to use this campaign in your school, community or youth-serving organization, visit the I am Norm website and join the I am Norm Facebook group. 

"I am Norm" exploded onto the national scene in 2011 with a viral video, media coverage and keynote presentations across the United States. 

"I am Norm" youth leaders have presented at national conferences hosted by TASH, Kids Included Together, Inclusion Works, PEAK, VSA and the Girl Scouts of the Nation's Capital. "I am Norm" was a central component of National Inclusive Schools Week, and thousands have used the campaign media, buttons and educational guide to promote inclusion and challenge the concept of 'normalcy' across the United States.

That's the power of youth.
