Making Our Way: Autism is a documentary produced by MPBN that seeks to
demystify autism, which is diagnosed in about one in every 110
children in America. Rather than focus on the limitations autism
places on those who suffer from it, the program examines the broad
spectrum of their experiences and looks at how many diagnosed with it
have gone on to achieve great success.
Featuring prominently in this hour-long program is Dr. Temple Grandin,
who is to autism sufferers what Michael J. Fox is to those battling
Parkinson’s: an inspiration (in Grandin’s case, as a PhD and an
animal welfare advocate) and someone who has achieved enormous success
despite the hurdles imposed by her condition.
