What does inclusion mean to me? In this film, a variety of people offer answers to this question - children and adults with disabilities, parents, and advocates for inclusion.
As they share their views, scenes unfold:
In a large multi-court gymnasium, kids play games.
A woman rides a motorized scooter out of a van. In a park, she uses an augmentative communication device to voice her thoughts.
Wearing a helmet, a boy gets ready to ride in a racing wheelchair.
In a garden, a man wearing a headband shades himself with an umbrella.
At an outdoor farmers' market, a vendor tends a booth.
Our view soars toward a city's tall buildings.
A man working in a garden smiles and waves. Grinning, another sits at a desk. Two women share a hug. A woman with short pink hair smiles. In a field, a gardener holds a fruit in his gloved hand. A young man dances. On a grassy hill, a woman with a ponytail sits in a wheelchair as she gazes out at the city. A long-haired man with glasses wears a teeshirt that reads "Turning over a new leaf."
The film ends with a title: Commit to Inclusion.
Four logos appear: President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition; National Center on Health, Physical Activity & Disability; American Association on Health and Disability; and Center on Disability at the Public Health Institute.
