Autism and Love

Recently, I’ve come across or have been sent, autism movies and stories about romance for the person diagnosed with autism.  It’s become a much larger discussion because of the number of young adults who were diagnosed early, received many wonderful interventions that helped them access neurotypicals (non-autistic diagnosed) and now want the ultimate in relationships, a person to love and to love them.  This is a giant leap from not only society’s expectations for someone with this diagnosis, but also an enormous area of concern and hope for us parents of young adults on the spectrum. The following link is just one such movie that looks into the world of love through autism eyes.
