Especially if the adults charged with theirwell being think and say otherwise. Big Enough Girl is a 2D animationdrawn and produced by Mary-Rose Little, a disabled artist fromnorthern Ontario. The work tackles themes of institutional ignorance,isolation, and discrimination when it comes to the needs of studentswith disabilities. By matching her own story with her hand drawnvisuals, she hopes to invite others to share their own stories andchange the way schools teach those who struggle to learn in thetraditional sense.
