"How To Dance In Ohio" Gives A Warm And Insightful View Of Teens On The Autism Spectrum

I was wandering around YouTube this weekend and I came across this outstanding short film. How To Dance In Ohio is about a group of teens with autism, preparing for their spring formal - a rite of passage for many teens, but for teens with autism, it can be a sensory bombardment and a social skills nightmare. The film addresses so many of the challenges they (and their teachers and therapists) face as they navigate this milestone with courage, compassion, and a touch of humor.

Check out the trailer:

And if you're interested in seeing the full film (it runs just over an hour), it's on YouTube in its entirety here.
