Willing and Able – The Patrick O’Hearn School

Henri Herré, 91 min. (2008)

This is a documentary about the former Patrick O’Hearn School in Dorchester, Massachusetts, an inclusive school where about a third of the children are disabled in some way. Now re-dedicated in the name of it’s founding Principal, Dr. William W. Henderson, the school is a national model for successful inclusion practices. Filmed over two years by Henri Herré and John Doucet, it shows how a determined staff and community can create a new and highly successful model for education.
