tô dentro!

Olha, lembrei de um filme que volta e meia passava na sessão da tarde, se chama “Meu filho, meu mundo“, passava direto na Sessão da Tarde quando eu era criança.

E aqui nesse site tem uma série de filmes sobre inclusão, de uma maneira geral.

Tentei postar no TQG, mas está dando erro!

Fiz uma busca no Netflix pra ver o que estaria disponível. Achei 2 documentários:

Autism Every Day (2006)

Opening with a 90-second montage of children crying, screaming and rocking as their parents try unsuccessfully to comfort or restrain them, this arresting documentary provides an unflinching look at a day in the lives of eight families with autistic members. Criticized by some for providing a relentlessly grim depiction of the disorder, the film focuses on the most severe cases — the children who’ll never be mainstreamed.
Release date is unknown; availability is not guaranteed.
Autism: The Musical (2007)
Filmed over a six-month period, Tricia Regan‘s inspiring documentary captures the transformation of five autistic children as they develop and rehearse “The Miracle Project,” an original musical about autism. Supported by their families and led by educator and coach Elaine Hall (whose son is in the production), the kids slowly develop social skills as they learn to work with one another. For some, the metamorphosis is nothing short of amazing.
Release date is unknown.

No Google achei
