Dancing with Autism
One in 68 children in America are diagnosed with autism. Take the anxiety that autistic children have about communicating and mix it with highly social events like prom and imagine how daunting this experience might seem. A new film captures the social struggles adolescents with autism face and offers a humanizing look at the resilience of these young adults as they prepare for prom.
