Movie Info

Inspired to explore the topic of autism in detail after his son was diagnosed with the disorder, filmmaker Todd Drezner weighs the benefits and drawbacks of the ""recovery movement" versus the "neurodiversity movement" in this informative, enlightening documentary. While proponents of the "recovery movement" blame the increasing communality of autism on environmental toxins and strive to reverse the effects of the affliction, supporters of the "neurodiversity movement" contend that it isn't necessary to try and cure autism, but rather to embrace the children who are diagnosed, and simply provide the best support possible. For parents of autistic children there is often no easy answer, though by offering a detailed examination of both approaches, Drezner offers some informative food for thought. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
