Harilyn Rousso, Filmmaker and Writer

Portrait of Harilyn Rousso
Harilyn Rousso

Harilyn Rousso has cerebral palsy which is a disease caused at or before birth. She was born in 1946. She is still alive so that makes her 66.

She grew up in the U.S. She is a filmmaker, writer, and artist. Harilyn decided to become a psychothererapist but people refused training. She does not take no for an answer.  She went to another training place and became one.

She co-wrote Double Jeopardy. I don’t think there are many things that could help people like her except accepting them like anyone else.
