Movie Info

11,000 Miles. 40 Days. 5 Languages. 1 Dream. If there ever was a story about the heart of America, it's found in families affected by autism. Like so many people say about America, they say these kids have their best days behind them. You can hear those in authority saying that their situation is hopeless and to redefine what is "normal." Many parents see a system that is corrupt or inept and lose hope while their support systems crumble and they're forced to go it alone. Yet, some decide to rise above the fray. What drives them? Who are these people? How are they changing their communities? Recorded in the original languages of it's citizens, the film weaves a broad net across the spectrum of American life in all its faiths, disparities, colors, lifestyles, and cultures. It's a story about the best days still lying ahead for our nation, the families, and the People who give America it's heart. (c) Official Facebook

Critic Reviews for The United States Of Autism

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (6)

  • The documentary clarifies the breadth of the autism spectrum, from those who lack basic language and/or motor skills to those at the high-functioning end who do not seek a "cure" but rather social acceptance in the name of neurological diversity.

  • Yes, the animated opening sequence has a professional polish that the rest of the film lacks, but the documentary's chosen angle is meaningful: The world of autism is as diverse as the nation.

  • The United States of Autism is an example of a well-meaning documentary that may do more harm than good.
