Great job covering many impairments. The videos were set up in easy to read format. A helpful addition to the movie selection would be one on Alzheimer's disease, for this is a growing problem with law enforcement.

"...Even though I was flunking English because I couldn't spell; in my high school year book under ambitions I had written 'Author'. When I went off to college I ran into a guy at the University of Oregon named Ralph Salisbury who was my first creative writing instructor and he turned all the lights on for me. He was the first teacher in all my years who actually said I had talent. Some people don't know this, but I have dyslexia."
