Movies About Autism
A List of Films About Autism
Maybe you have a child in the Autism Spectrum or perhaps you know someone with Autism, and you want to learn more. I created this movie list lens with the purpose in mind of making it easier to find films that not only document Autism, but give drama filled accounts of some examples of what it is like having a family member with it. Below you will find my impressions of these films, and a list of the films that I recommend you watch.
So Much to Learn From Films
When you learn that your child is different you have so many questions, and have so much to learn. My wife and I discovered a few films in our pursuit of knowledge about Autism. So I wanted to share with you a list of the films that I have seen thus far, and explain how each film taught us something different. I've learned that not every person with Autism is the same, and that just like anyone else they are all different, but sometimes they can be just like the typical kid. Autism is a spectrum, and after watching a few films I learned that you can live a normal life, and still pursue your dreams.There is so much to learn about Autism. Below is just a small list of movies that I have personally seen and really enjoyed.

Biographical film about a woman who overcomes her diagnosis, and becomes a scientist in Humane Livestock Handling. She also invented the "Hug Box". Interesting film for everyone to see.
