What people are saying . . .

This beautifully successful plea for the inclusive arts movement is strongly recommended for collections serving special populations and those in the arts. Difficult to forget, it should offer inspiration for parents and teachers of special needs children.
– Library Journal, August 2011

As a passionate advocate for school inclusion, I know it’s crucial for students with disabilities to join inclusive communities when they become adults. A New Kind of Listening shows a practical, positive way to build more inclusive communities, one small arts project at a time. It should be required viewing for all student teachers.  I  strongly recommend this film as a media resource for all education professors and students.
– Dan Habib, Director, “Including Samuel”, Filmmaker in Residence, University of New Hampshire Institute on Disability

I highly recommend this to teachers, administrators, and people working in the arts.  Parents and family members will see their own journey reflected in this well crafted film.
– Alice Elliott, award winning filmmaker, “Body & Soul”, “The Collector of Bedford Street”
