SCRIPT ACCESSIBLE – FEATURE SCREENPLAYS FOCUSED ON DISABILITIES –  EMBRACE ABILITY. THESE TWO SIMPLE WORDS ARE OUR BEDROCK. THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS OF CREATING “SCRIPT ACCESSIBLE” STARTED SEVERAL DECADES AGO, WHEN A HEAD INJURY TURNED MY HEALTHY SIX-MONTH-OLD BODY INTO ONE THAT WOULD SOMEDAY HOUSE A WRITER THAT TYPES WITH ONE USABLE HAND. SINCE THEN, I’VE SPENT MY LIFE EMBRACING MY ABILITIES, RATHER THAN MY INABILITIES.
