Who Cares About Kelsey? is a new film from Dan Habib documenting the lives of students with emotional/behavioral challenges. The documentary shows innovative educational approaches that help these students succeed—while improving the overall school culture and climate.
 
The film’s primary subject, Kelsey Carroll, has dealt with tremendous challenges throughout her life, including homelessness and ADHD. She considered dropping out of high school and was a likely candidate for the juvenile justice system. However, through intensive self-directed planning and positive behavioral supports, she graduated in June 2010 with the hope of working toward a career in law enforcement or the emergency medical field.
 
The DVD also contains mini-films on young people representing various age groups (early childhood through transition), disabilities (including autism, mental illness, and cognitive disabilities), and ethnically diverse communities. 
 
Habib, an award-winning filmmaker, includes the voices of students, family members, peers, and educators while examining key questions such as: What types of supports and interventions enable children with emotional/behavioral challenges to succeed? What types of training and support do teachers, staff, volunteers, and administrators need so that they feel equipped to include students with complex emotional/behavioral challenges? How are behavioral problems linked to communication and learning disabilities?
