Building on what we discussed yesterday in regards to a how Autism itself may be a blessing in disguise which allows those who have it to view the world in such a different way as to make it better for the rest of us, I thought to share this video clip with you today. It is the trailer for the beautiful award winning documentary, The Horse Boy, which is based on the best selling novel, The Horse Boy: A Father’s Quest to Heal His Son by Rupert Isaacson. What struck me most about this trailer was not just the beautiful story of how far a family went to find a cure for their son, but how we miss the fact that Autism indeed may have a benefit. What would a world without Autism look like? I imagine it wouldn’t be nearly as beautiful or as special. Share your thoughts ….
