Autism Confidential shines a light on the hottest issues in the world of autism, including topics often shunned by conventional media. Who cares for autistic adults after their parents die? How can we fix our broken care system? What interventions help, or hurt? Join hosts Jill Escher, Amy Lutz, and others from the National Council on Severe Autism as they take on the hardest questions of autism with leading thinkers and doers.
“The brilliant new documentary film, “Beyond” features Tamara Mark, a Hollywood actress and dancer, and now single mom living in LA with her two grown sons who suffer from severe autism, Ian and Harry. It is raw and unflinching in its portrayal of the hardships of severe autism, but also the intense bond and love between mother and child. The film explores many themes: isolation, trauma, coping, and most of all, the desperate need for long-term support for the severely autistic. We had a candid conversation about the film and our broken care system with the filmmakers, Tamara, and her new husband Marc.”
