Coming Soon to PBS, the Award-Winning 'Autistic-Like, Graham's Story'
Have you heard of the new documentary Autistic-Like: Graham’s Story? It is quite popular with OTs and parents. Here is where it gets exciting: Not only is the film is getting rave reviews, but, PBS is airing the documentary nationally next month. Here is what two good friends of PediaStaff (that you may have heard of) are saying about the movie:
“Autistic-Like describes so many of the children we know and care about, and reminds us to not only think outside the box, but to put the box aside altogether. Every developmental pediatrician, pediatric neurologist, parent of a child with special needs, teacher, occupational therapist, physical therapist, and speech therapist should see this film.” — – Lindsey Biel, Occupational Therapist, Co-author Raising A Sensory Smart Child
Carol Kranowitz (author of The Out-of-Sync-Child’) says of ‘Autistic-Like’ – “This film is a gem. A brilliant reminder that by watching closely and looking for what works, parents can find the right help for their child.”

Additionally, the the film-makers have produced a 2 DVD set for speech and occupational therapy professionals (not quite available on Amazon yet) that includes both the original film along with workshop tools like a video discussion featuring leading experts, and full-color guidebook with discussion prompts and suggested readings. It’s designed for professionals to use as an out-of-the-box workshop or seminar, as well as well as a conversation starter for parent support groups, etc.
