From award-winning filmmaker Dan Habib comes INTELLIGENT LIVES, a catalyst to transform the label of intellectual disability from a life sentence of isolation into a life of possibility for the most systematically segregated people in America.

INTELLIGENT LIVES stars three pioneering young American adults with intellectual disabilities – Micah, Naieer, and Naomie – who challenge perceptions of intelligence as they navigate high school, college, and the workforce. Academy Award-winning actor and narrator Chris Cooper contextualizes the lives of these central characters through the emotional personal story of his son Jesse, as the film unpacks the shameful and ongoing track record of intelligence testing in the U.S.

INTELLIGENT LIVES challenges what it means to be intelligent, and points to a future in which people of all abilities can fully participate in higher education, meaningful employment and intimate relationships.

Triple P Parenting | TripleP | Triple P - Eau Claire

Parenting isn’t always easy. Triple P is here to help!

It’s easy to feel like you should automatically know how to parent. Or that you should love every messy, stressful, exhausting second of raising a kid. But that’s not reality. Your family’s learning as you go, figuring out how to keep up, set rules, and solve problems together. That’s normal. Every day brings challenges and some days you are running low on time, on sleep, on money, or patience. It’s no wonder many parents feel overwhelmed.

Triple P can help. Triple P providers teach families how to spend less time battling misbehavior and more time building close relationships. You’ll develop positive parenting skills to manage stress and encourage healthy habits. And that can mean more good days for your family
