Generation A: Portraits of Autism and the Arts

Get an inside look at autism in Generation A: Portraits of Autism and the Arts. In this 62-minute DVD, art programs and therapies are explored for helping children on the spectrum to succeed. Music, dance, art, and animation are offered as ways for kids to connect with other people. Creative activities seem to help stimulate speech and language, encourage social interaction with others, and build self-esteem in children with limited skills in these areas. Eight portraits of individuals with autism are seen as this movie celebrates their talents and provides a platform for them to talk about their obstacles and their successes. Interviews with the children are offered along with experts in the field of autism such as Dr. Temple Grandin; Dr. Stephen Shore; Ed Asner, autism spokesman; Joanne Lara, founder, Autism Movement Therapy, and more.
