This inspiring and thought-provoking follow-up to the 1992 Academy Award-winning documentary Educating Peter highlights the experiences of Peter Gwasdauskis, a child with Down syndrome, in sixth grade, eighth grade, and high school as he adds speech therapy and life skills classes and on-the-job training to his academic coursework. Interviews with Peter's parents, teachers, fellow students, aides, and doctors demonstrate the broad-based, ongoing support mobilized to help him fight depression, improve his ability to communicate, and move ahead in building a meaningful life for himself.
