EMBRACING AUTISM WITH THOSE WHO'VE BEEN THERE
It is very rare for a professional producer to have an opportunity to experience Autism the way Robert Parish has. Since 1993 when his son Jack was born, this award winning documentary filmmaker has been filming and learning about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The Parish’s use their journey to teach us why it may be better to embrace a diagnosis of Autism, which many feel may be the key to helping ASD children and adults reach their full potential.
This very special insight is now available in Riding the Shotgun with ASD featuring Jack who was diagnosed at age 2, his dad and some of the experts they have encountered along the way. The Parish’s, along with teachers, parents, therapists and advocates share their knowledge, experience and expertise. This high quality production is both engaging and educational, making it suitable for advocacy, staff training, parent education and teaching.
