One half of the videos created for Frank D. Lanterman Regional Center were Spanish language. While not fluent in Spanish I am capable of editing with the use of transcripts. The shoots were fun, the people amazing. Caregivers are the best of people.
Inclusion of children with disabilities is key to development of the child. The benefit goes further than the impaired child being included, with the typical children in the typical environment gaining a greater understanding of atypical others. It is about growing healthy community. This video is part of a series of videos created for Frank D. Lanterman Regional Center that consumed a good portion of my 2019 and still continues.
All the people and events shown here are real. Scripts for staff were displayed on teleprompter and English language interviews of clients were led by me. We also completed Spanish language versions with those interviews led in Spanish by staff personnel. Other videos still to be completed and published cover the topics of: Respite, Living Options, Behavior Intervention and Early Start.
A few of the interviews were yet to be completed when the Covid-19 pandemic closed us down. Hopefully we will be able to get back to work soon!
