So much for "where are the adult autistics." What a lovely piece of film! Thank you!

You are doing good work, Estee. Thank-you for being such a trailblazer.

I am especially interested on how we as parents can help the schools to encourage the special abilities of autistics and help them function better in our rigid society. I feel like the school system that we are in has not yet begun to understand the different ways that Chris learns and processes his relationships. He is so brave and works so hard for so little return in the existing system.
