Teenage autism dating
The new Netflix series, available for streaming on Friday, takes the coming-of-age story in a new direction, telling it from the perspective of a teen on the autism spectrum.With many youths diagnosed with autism on the cusp of adulthood, series creator Robia Rashid () figured a story told from the teen's point of view, a first for a TV comedy, would be a great way to explore dating and other rituals connected with growing up.The diagnosis brought with it, as it may for many, an initial reaction of despair and a sense of helplessness. Now, at age seven, her stimming has ceased and she is in school in the appropriate grade and shows continuous improvement.
