Loving Lampposts

1hr 23min | 2011
What would you call a four year old who caresses all the lampposts in the park? Quirky? Unusual? Or sick?


Such labels are at the center of the debate about autism: is it a disease or a different way of being?or both? In Loving Lampposts, we witness this debate and meet the parents, doctors, therapists, and autistic people who are redefining autism at a moment when it's better known than ever before. Motivated by his son's diagnosis, in LOVING LAMPPOSTS, Todd Drezner explores the changing world of autism and learns the truth of the saying, "if you've met one autistic person, you've met one autistic person."

I learned ever so much from this film which was posted by my daughter who runs a company working with this population of human beings. Thanks for all you have taught me. However, technically, I nearly gave up because the video kept freezing and I had to keep starting over, finding where I had left off, and hoping I could finally see and hear it through to the end.
