Autism & Sensory Processing Disorder Movies 




Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder Movies? Yes! I had no idea there are so many movies about Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder. 

Watching movies as a family or parents, we can learn a lot. It feels great to be able to watch a movie and be able to relate to the story and understand what that person or family is experiencing in their lives. 

It can help us feel less alone too.
