Able Lives - Main Episodes

According to the International Center for Disability Information, 20 percent of the people in the United States are currently living with disabilities. The new public television series Able Lives focuses on how Connecticut residents live with disabilities.
The Able Lives series is created in a "docuzine" style, combining both documentary and magazine formats, with each 30-minute episode featuring three or four story segments.
Able Lives is a 10-part series that focuses on disabilities as they relate to family (marriage, children, personal assistants and other aspects of family life); access (housing, transportation, emergency preparedness and facilities); culture; work (self-determination); social aspects; education (early development, inclusion); and science.
Able Lives was awarded an Emmy in 2007 for the Public/Current Affairs Program Category.
