Spina Bifida 

This program features Valerie Perkins.  Valerie copes with the same teen issues as her friends and views her disability as just one part of who she is.  Script material covers specific issues such as a description of Spina Bifida, Valerie's use of braces and crutches, "person-first" language and the importance of choosing words sensitively.  Self esteem and going after opportunities in life (particularly in social situations), are also discussed.
