Kim

WEST BLOOMFIELD

Kim Peek was the inspiration for Barry Morrow's Academy Award winning movie "Rainman". Unlike
Dustin Hoffman's portrayal, Kim is not autistic. He has a congenital brain deformity that caused him to be
highly-intelligent in certain areas. An example of this is his ability to memorize unlimited historical and
statistical facts in numerous subject areas. This brain deformity, however, adversely affected his motor
sensors. He is assisted by his father, Fran, who will talk about the obstacles that Kim has had to overcome
throughout his life.

Kim and his father have interacted with more than 400,000 people since March of 1989. These presentations
have received very positive responses from people across the nation. Together, both Kim and Fran have the
capability to emphasize the importance of recognizing the "abilities" rather than the disabilities of individ-
uals with special needs.

Kim will interact with the audience and will discuss a wide variety of topics which will include: World
History/U.S. History/Current Events/ Professional Football, Basketball, Baseball, Boxing, Horse Racing/
Classical Music and Composers/ Literature and Authors/ The Space Program/ Geography/
Shakespeare /and Calendar Dates.
