Storyline

What would you call a four year old who caresses all the lampposts in the park? Quirky? Unusual? Or sick? Such labels are at the center of the debate about autism. Is it a disease or a different way of being--or both? After his son's diagnosis, filmmaker Todd Drezner visits the front lines of the autism wars. We meet parents desperate for a cure, visit conferences where vendors hawk vitamins and hyperbaric chambers, hear from advocates who fight for 'neurodiversity,' and follow a group of autistic children and adults whose lives show that 'if you've met one autistic person, you've met one autistic person.' Written by Anonymous

A step in the right direction
22 May 2011 | by floyd-52See all my reviews

This documentary exposes a wide range of viewpoints.

It demonstrates the flaws in the "mercury vaccine cause autism" argument.

It shows how different families handle the every day reality of living with and empowering autistic people.

It considers the effect of environment, and diet.

Personally, I've got the most mileage from "Disconnected Kids".

I now have optimism that Autism and ASD can be eliminated in some cases and certainly improved in all cases.

We will all need to become experts in Autism, Asperger's and ASD.

This movie has helped.
