Deej won the lottery when his parents adopted him from foster care; He won it again when they included him in regular education. Now, he seeks to help kids much less fortunate than himself by showing people what a nonspeaking student with autism can do. In Deej the camera intrudes on every aspect of Deej's life. If seeing truly is believing, then perhaps eyes can be opened to the full potential of kids with significant disabilities. Shot over a six-year period, Deej reveals not only what the ideal of full inclusion requires but also what it can accomplish. DJ Savarese will be in attendance and available for questions and answers.
