The “Because” PSA has a simple but significant message—that youth with disabilities, like all youth, should grow up expecting to work and succeed, and parents, educators and other adults of influence in their lives should reinforce this expectation at every turn. The new discussion guide—which comes with a DVD containing the PSA—can be used to facilitate a conversation about this important topic among adults or youth in a variety of settings. Free of charge, it is available in both English and Spanish.
The "What Can You Do -- Because" PSA can also be viewed on youtube with open captions.
The CDE is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP). To order a “Because” discussion guide, as well as associated posters and other materials, visit ODEP’s publications order webpage. To learn more about the CDE, visit the CDE website
