Original Minds on WXXI-TV

Tue, 09/25/2012 - 10:00am - 11:00am

Five teenagers stigmatized by being in Special Ed. struggle to articulate how their brains work, and discover that they are smarter than they thought.

In a one-size-fits-all educational system, kids with learning disabilities suffer from lack of self-esteem. They become alienated and drop out. But the protagonists of Original Minds, airing Tuesday, September 25th at 10a.m. on WXXI-World, buck the trend. They work intensively with the filmmaker to tell their own stories. Their narratives reveal the unique approach to learning that each must discern and claim as his or her own if they are to succeed in the world. The show will re-air 9/25 at 4:00PM, 6:00PM and 9:00PM

Local support for the American Graduate Initiative and this broadcast is made possible by Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection, preparing students for graduation, college, and a career.
