As Joey gets older, he is starting to face the stereotypes and myths that increase discrimination against him. People often judge others by how they speak- and speech is one of Joey's most prominent challenges. Other kids aren't going to care that he reads three grades levels above his class or is the top math student. Heck, most adults don't care. They see a child speaking oddly, saying things that are unexpected or apparently without context, and the myths emerge like gorgons to block opportunities and relationships. And why? Because he talks "funny"?
ASAN, the Dan Merino Foundation, and Kent Creative have gotten together and created a wonderful public service spot that everyone ought to see. For a version with captions, visit this link (thanks to kev and codeman38).
