Artpod looks at autism and art therapy

May 30, 2014

This week in ArtPod, we look at the "great wave" generation of young adults and children with autism.

We spent a few days on a film set where those teens and adults are learning job skills, social interaction, and how to walk back on set after a small breakdown. 

Then we visit a children's hospital that's using art –murals, patient portraits and more – to help parents and kids navigate the stressful, chaotic experience.
