Description
Bob the Vid Tech meets a group of very special Vid Kids -- children with physical, mental, and emotional disabilities -- and tags along with them as they learn, among other things, how to sail and ride horses. In Westminster, MD, he visits the Carroll County 4-H Therapeutic Riding Program to find out how Bob Shirley and Mary Shunk use horses to help children exercise muscles and improve self-esteem. Even Bob the Vid Tech eventually musters the courage to climb aboard a trusty steed. And at Sandy Point State Park near Annapolis, Bob meets Don Backe of CRAB -- Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating -- as he teaches a group of disabled children -- many of whom are wheelchair- bound -- how to steer a 2,000 pound sailboat. VID KID: MEETING THE CHALLENGE! offers a sensitive, yet upbeat introduction to the world of disability, and allows young viewers to tag along with this very special group of Vid Kids as they teach Bob all about what they like to do to have fun.
