Description
This documentary takes an enlightening look at a group of young people with a wide spectrum of learning disabilities and offers a compelling portrait of the ways they overcome their challenges. By using their strengths and working with parents and teachers committed to helping the children discover the ways they learn best, these young people have risen above learning differences and low self-esteem and have found their unique voices. A group of students attending Denver Academy, a school for students with learning differences, find that being surrounded by others with similar challenges helps them accept themselves, as well as succeed academically and in the arts. Kids' interview segments are intercut with scenes of the children engaged in the activities that reflect their talents: one is a gifted muralist, another shines as a poet. Another boy is so articulate no one would ever suspect that he has dyslexia and has trouble spelling words and recognizing them on sight. "I Can't Do This But I Can Do That : A Film For Families About Learning Differences" reassures chidren of different abilities that they are capable of performing great feats in their lives.
