Higher Education Video
Many people with developmental disabilities (DD) do not receive the support necessary to seek and achieve success at the post-secondary level. An upbeat, interesting video that can hold the attention of and inspire high school students and their families through stories of students with DD attending universities can challenge students, their families, and educators to consider higher education as a viable option.
Create a video featuring real-life stories about students with DD who are succeeding in a variety of post-secondary environments.
This project aimed to develop a 10-12 minute video featuring real-life stories about students with DD who are succeeding in a variety of post-secondary environments. The primary target audience was to be high school students with DD and their families, as well as high school educators. The communications objectives were both informational and motivational. The video would inform viewers about educational opportunities and support available to students with DD and, more importantly, encourage and motivate them to pursue post-secondary options.
