When Emily Kingsley’s son Jason was born with Down’s syndrome over 40 years ago, the doctors told her to send him away to an institution and forget about him. She defied them, determined to raise her son with labels or limitations. Little did she know at the time that this one choice would change the world for people with Down’s syndrome. Years later, while Emily was working as a copywriter on Sesame Street, she had an idea. She pitched an episode where Big Bird would do an in-depth interview with her son Jason about his experiences. Emily has been a disability activist for over 30 years, serving in a leadership capacity on many boards, writing acclaimed articles and award-winning films inspired by her experiences with Jason.
