Abstract
To talk with 10-year-old Dillon Kelley, it is not readily apparent that he has a form of mental retardation. But that does not stop his 4th-grade classmates, who discern that he is unlike them without understanding why, from teasing and shunning him. In this program, ABC News anchor Ted Koppel compassionately presents Dillon’s story as an opportunity to better understand the genetic disorder called Fragile X syndrome. Through anecdotes, Dillon’s family members describe aspects of his behavior, the ostracism he faces, and the time when, in a bold and unusual step, they went to his school to explain to his peers why he is different. (Originally broadcast on September 27, 2002).
