Adults with Autism - The Journey Home (DVD)

This is the true story of four individuals with autism who surpassed all expectations, and the science-based intervention that changed their lives. 

Years in the making, this new documentary follows Bobby, James, Amy and Will, four individuals born with autism. Now as adults, they live and work independently in their New Jersey community. These remarkable outcomes are the result of early and ongoing intervention based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. 

This film releases, for the first time, the remarkable archival footage of the adults progressing from childhood through adulthood. New footage profiles parents revealing the challenges and successes they have encountered while raising their children with autism from infancy to adulthood. Professionals describe the scientific methods used to teach daily living and job readiness skills that provide adults with a greater level of independence and competence.

Available on DVD.
