Problem: In general, special needs adults have trouble holding a job and living in society because they are perceived as a kid and not as an adult. I've seen this all nine of the years I've volunteered at the Friendship Circle, a non-profit that empowers individuals to be friends with special needs and not treat them like the other.
Solution: I am an Adult not a Child is a book and a documentary. The book is a day in the life of 3 different special needs adults and the struggles they have to overcome not only their disability but their past struggles. Those struggles include bullies, dropping out of school, feeling misunderstood and more. The Documentary shows that special needs people can hold a job and sometimes that job involves being an artist.
