Project Description:

Kelly's "Hollywood Kids" project gives students with learning disabilities a chance to write and star in their own movie. The students work after school and on weekends to write, film and edit a movie. The movie then premieres for the students and their parents. The project helps the students gain confidence in their skills and develop other important ones.
