5.0 out of 5 stars HBO - King of the Docs March 16 2011
Format:DVD
HBO is quickly becoming the leader in documentary features on TV. This particular DVD is well done, and has all the production value one would expect from a major film company.

4.0 out of 5 stars A positive documentary... July 22 2009
By Muffet
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is worth watching whether you're a parent or teacher with an autistic child or just someone who wants to remember that everyone needs and deserves a place to have fun and perform! You will be amazed what happens on the stage - and off! Worth the time for sure!

This movie is a really useful resource to see the variety of personalities of kids on the Autism Spectrum. It helped me understand what it would be like to work with kids with ASD, especially children who enroll in my kids yoga classes. I recommend the movie to those in my kids yoga teacher training who don't have this experience.

It really helps to show the stress the parent's are under too!

All in all, the movie was a wonderful story an eye opening teacher resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very special film. April 2 2008
By Chris Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"Autism: the Musical" wasn't necessarily something groundbreakingly new, nor was it the most complete view of autism (which can be a great deal worse than what you see in the film), but it was a truly inspired and beautiful vision of hope and understanding. The children in the film are wonderful and the adults cover the whole range of what people can be. If this doesn't deeply touch and affect you, then there is something quite wrong. It's a valuable and important film for everyone to see and I applaud its production.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow. This is wicked good. May 23 2008
By Crystal A. Grey-hewett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I am the mother of an an almost 5 year old autistic boy, and I had been itching to see Autism: The Musical. Now that I have, I am so touched and amazed by what went into that film. I liked the fact that she did not hide the difficulties these children can have, but she still showed that they are so much more than just that (a fact that can easily be forgotten when the child has a meltdown at the grocery store). I also liked that the director unflinchingly showed just how angry and frustrated that we parents can become, and that that anger and frustration has its roots in the fact that we are fiercely protective of ours and we fear what happens if we are not here. At the same time, those kids were amazing and fantastic and she showed it. Adam is a little ladies man in the making, Lexi has a lovely singing voice, Henry and Wyatt are just absolute stars, and maybe the reason Neal does not talk is simply because the rest of us don't speak angel yet. Everyone should watch this.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME DOCUMENTARY April 2 2008
By Julio Cesar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
As the dad of a very special 10 year Autistic son, I want to say BRAVO to the people who put this work together, it does a great job of showing the reality of the "wide spectrum" of Autism. I am ordering several copies of this DVD to share with friends and family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could easily be a reality series. Sept. 12 2009
By AKRoberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
My daughter is almost 5 and was diagnosed with autism shortly before turning 3. Unless you have a child or sibling with autism, you have no idea what day to day living is like. This movie touches on it and reveals some of the struggles families face as well as the heartwarming side of this puzzling disorder. My husband and I watched it together first, then I lent it to our daughter's caregiver, her Montessori teacher and currently my mother has it. I plan to pass this movie along to anyone who works with my daughter and family so they can have a better understanding of what life is like with a loved one who has autism.

I say the premise of Autism: The Musical could easily become a mini-series or reality series because not every issue facing families of children with autism could be covered in this 90 minute documentary. Seemingly simple everyday tasks like going to the grocery store, the shoe store, family photo sessions at JCPenney, dining out, playdates, sibling issues, etc. could be featured to give viewers an even better understanding of the struggles families face.

Overall, if you know someone who has a child with autism or work with special needs children, it is worth your while to watch Autism: The Musical.

By J. Barnett - Published on Amazon.com

I just saw this today and was very moved by. As someone with Asperger's Syndrome/High-functioning autism it was nice to see my fellow aspies and auties portrayed in such a loving light. I highly recommend this to everyone.
