Synopsis

Meet Dean A. A. Poyadue. Dean is many things to many people?a son, a husband, a college student, and an employee. He is also a man living with Down syndrome. Just Call Me Dean is his remarkable story, which he tells with a little help from his mom, Florene.

Dean?s innocence and wisdom will capture your heart as he takes you on a journey through the key events of his life, from early childhood to the present. Discover how, with a can-do attitude and the help of his family, Dean has conquered life?s milestones?college, employment, marriage, independence, and more.

Full of inspiration of anyone whose life is touched by someone with special needs, Just Call Me Dean seeks to help professionals enhance their empathy and skills. Parents of special needs can broaden their expectations for their own children as they learn of Dean?s accomplishments. Finally, Dean?s story can help educate the general public about the millions of Americans living with disabilities.

Dean challenges us to seek out life?s adventures. Are you up for the challenge?
