“People don’t understand my Kid”
Growing Roots provides support and education for families with children with disabilities.
“What does this diagnosis mean?
Who can help me in my community?
Why do I feel this way?
How can I help my child?
Who are all these specialists and what should I ask them?
How can I care for the rest of my family?”
Growing Roots is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to empowers families by providing classes and support groups that inform, connect and support parents of children with special needs. Special needs include Autism, Aspergers, Cerebral Palsey, Learning disabilities, and more.
I have teamed up with Dennis Burnett Photography and Growing Roots to create a video to spread the awareness and help support these families with children with disabilities.
We want to make a video – That will generate interest and funding for Growing Roots supporting families with children with disabilities.
This video will explore
What it means to have a children with disabilities.
Why families need support within the medical and educational systems for their children.
Education for the community
Navigation for when families receive a diagnosis
Community for Families with Children with Disabilities
What We Need
We need funding for the project. $15,000. Currently the entire crew has volunteered their time and resources ( year and a half) to create this teaser video. We interviewed 8 families. What we found is that there is a huge need for support, awareness and change.
We will be following families around at home, school, work, at therapy, and the doctors. We want to inspire a thought movement to generate change in the medical and education system specifically for families with children with disabilities.
There is a need to
Make a difference in peoples lives
Spread awareness of what it means to have a child with special needs
Be part of a community that supports families
