Filmmaker Adam Larsen's documentary "Neurotypical" is an unprecedented exploration of autism from the point of view of autistic people themselves. Four-year-old Violet, teenaged Nicholas and adult Paula occupy different positions on the autism spectrum, but they are all at pivotal moments in their lives. How they and the people around them work out their perceptual and behavioral differences becomes a remarkable reflection of the "neurotypical" world — the world of the non-autistic — revealing inventive adaptations on each side and an emerging critique of both what it means to be normal and what it means to be human. (60 min.)

Post-film discussion will include comments from Teri Walden, director of EnCircle Technologies, a program that trains autism spectrum adults in computer skills that they can use in the workplace, and Kyle Boffa, EnCircle program assistant.

This showing is a collaboration with POV, PBS' award-winning nonfiction film series (www.pbs.org/pov).
