Join the Spectrum Connection for a Viewing of Autism in Love
“Autism in Love is a feature length documentary that explores the lives of four autistic adults as they pursue and manage romantic relationships. Autism is a neurological disorder characterized by impaired social interactions and communication, and often restricted by repetitive behavior. It typically reveals itself in the first three years of a child’s development and can be highly variable in it’s symptoms.
The manifestations of autism affect everyone a little differently.
The spectrum ranges from individuals with severe impairments – who may be silent, mentally disabled, and locked into hand flapping and rocking – to high functioning individuals who may have active but distinctly odd social approaches, narrowly focused interests, and verbose, pedantic communication.
In recent years, the rate of autism spectrum disorder diagnosis has increased at an alarming rate making some question whether an epidemic is imminent. Is autism an unfortunate bi-product of modern immunizations, dietary shifts or genetic mutations? Or, has increased awareness and knowledge caused this rapid increase in diagnosis?” –autisminlove.com
