POV: Neurotypical

An The Atlantic article, Dating on the Autism Spectrum, I read last weekend sent me reading more about the Autism Spectrum again. This would be the fourth or fifth time. In my cache of saved articles, I found a link to a NYT piece called Navigating Love and Autism, which suggests not that long ago the same topic caught my eye. Through the rabbit hole, I ran across this video. OK. Back to reality. From the page:

Neurotypical is an unprecedented exploration of autism from the point of view of autistic people themselves. Four-year-old Violet, teenaged Nicholas and adult Paula occupy different positions on the autism spectrum, but they are all at pivotal moments in their lives. How they and the people around them work out their perceptual and behavioral differences becomes a remarkable reflection of the “neurotypical” world — the world of the non-autistic — revealing inventive adaptations on each side and an emerging critique of both what it means to be normal and what it means to be human.

Watch Neurotypical on PBS. See more from POV.
