Somebody's Kids

Directed by Katherine Stenger-Frey
Canada, 1977 (documentary, 25 minutes, colour, English)

Film Description:
"Somebody's Kids is a social documentary that shows three contrasting adolescents, each with a learning disability, their feelings toward the disability and their perceptions of their behaviour. It makes reference to three essential criteria which help to determine the success or failure of the child: the importance of recognizing the disability in the young child; appreciating the fact that each child learns individually; and the significance of family supports. Somebody's Kids is not a technical diagnostic tool. Its aim is to stimulate discussion and to help parents, teachers, and adolescents understand how adolescents with learning disabilities feel."
