Special Needs Media Alert- LA Times & Joey Travolta & Inclusion Films

Inclusion Films, is a new workshop effort in Hollywood that trains adults with developmental disabilities on the in/outs of the film industry. It's spearheaded by Joey Travolta, brother of John. It's not the first effort for Travolta championing those with special needs. He's run acting workshops for those with disablities and produced the Keri Bowers/Taylor Cross film Normal People Scare Me, about living with autism. "I've found my true calling," Travolta says of serving this population.

Kudos to you, Joey Travolta, for all the ways in which you are using your name, talents and, important industry contacts to change the lives of those with special needs.

Responsible use of celebrity, and huge progress.
