Special Needs Media Alert! -Gail Williamson Interview on LA Talk Radio

Here's the hour-long interview with Gail Williamson on LA Talk Radio about employing actors with Down syndrome, in part, in response to the recent cover story about actors with Down syndrome that appeared recently in Entertainment Weekly (read it here).

My friend, Gail, is the founder of Down Syndrome in Art and Media (DSiAM), and for years has been the industry go-to liaison in L.A. for making such successful connections and working gigs happen. Through DSiAM, Gail continues to help actors with developmental disabilities find work in the industry.

Hmmmmm.... that would make a good reality show.

Listen here. Note: there is a delay before the audio begins. Be patient.
