Spectrum News: Differently abled people find support with ThinkDIFFERENTLY

In December, Spectrum News interviewed Dana Hopkins, All Abilities Program Director for Dutchess County at the 6th Annual ThinkDIFFERENTLY Conference held at the Henry A. Wallace Center at FRD’s Presidential Library and Home. Journalist, John Camera, from Spectrum requested an interview with a family who benefited from ThinkDIFFERENTLY, and Donalee and Zechia did not hesitate to offer their time. We are greatly for their willingness and time to be interviewed on camera for this clip on how ThinkDIFFERENTLY has helped them.
