This video is a powerful teaching and learning tool for general and special educators, parents, and students committed to creating more inclusive and tolerant schools and community environments. In it viewers are introduced to Kim Peek, the extraordinary mega-savant who was the inspiration for the character portrayed by Dustin Hoffman in the movie Rain Man. In the years following the film, Kim traveled around the country and around the world, carrying a message of accepting individual differences, recognizing that everyone is talented and special in different ways, and treating one another with respect. This video features clips of Kim speaking to school audiences, interacting with students, parents, and staff, and demonstrating his astonishing gifts. It is ideal for use with students in grades 5-12 as part of a character education unit to learn about accepting differences in others, developing tolerance, and appreciating diversity.
