2018 Festival Event:

Autism in the Media: How Real Is It?

Shows like Parenthood, books like The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, and movies like The Accountant all portray characters with autism. With 1 in 68 people being affected by autism spectrum disorder, it's no wonder we are seeing the disorder more in the popular media. To get it right, producers frequently consult experts to ensure that a character is being depicted authentically, and now we're bringing those experts to you! Our panel of clinicians and science communicators will share their personal experiences in consulting on popular movie sets and shows that are currently starring an individual with autism.
First come, first served seating. Space is limited.
