‘Autism Is A World’


Nominated for an Academy Award, “Autism Is A World”

is a rare look at autism through the words of a young woman who lives with it.

Tune in Saturday and Sunday at 8 and 11 p.m. ET.


edited to add after watching it:  I have seen this before.  In fact, I think it is one of the shows that made me think people were crazy to think that Zane had autism because that is not what it looks like in our house.  I don’t know if it is because she is a lot more severe than Zane, or just because it is a lot different, with a different permutation of symptoms. 

I did find the way her para’s interacted with her to be a bit grating though…condescending.  It bugged me.

    I only got to watch the first 15 minutes tonight. Dom was majorly stimming and that always involves loud noises in my ear while he jumps all over me and plays with my hair. Needless to say, it was hard to hear what was being said. I hope to be able to watch it tomorrow night. Thanks for the heads up, I was able to dvr it. :)
