First of all, the reason I give it four stars instead of one is because I found some of the things presented to be inaccurate. For example, it was stated that there are more boys with autism than girls, however there are actually about the same number of girls and boys with autism, there are more boys DIAGNOSED with autism than girls so many girls slip through due to the difference in 'symptoms' in girls. Furthermore, I disliked how at times they would portray autism as a negative thing to be scared of or to want to eliminate. Autism is a neurological difference, it is not a disease that makes someone sick or ruins a family, it is not something one should fear happening, it comes with challenges but at the end of the day every kid does. However, I admit that as a whole this film portrayed autism quite positively, I like the last couple of lines which went something similar to 'this is not something that needs to be fixed, these kids just need to be heard'. I completely agree with that statement. Overall, a very nice film which showed many sides to autism and was enjoying to watch.
