Including Samuel chronicles the Habib family’s efforts to include their son Samuel, who has cerebral palsy, in every facet of their lives. The film honestly portrays his family’s hopes and struggles, as well as the experiences of four other individuals with disabilities and their families.
Joe Petner will speak after the film. His career in public education has spanned 51 years. Dr. Petner collaborated with filmmaker Dan Habib on his award-winning documentary, Including Samuel, and was principal of the Haggerty Elementary School in Cambridge, MA and involved in developing a whole school model of inclusion.
