Description

A first kiss, a first dance. These rites of passage can be exciting and terrifying, but for many teenagers and young adults on the autism spectrum, they are debilitating. In How to Dance in Ohio, we join a group of young people with developmental challenges as they prepare for their first formal dance. From practicing social skills to picking dates and dresses, the teens develop their ability to connect, navigate social rules, and take part in a longstanding American tradition – the spring dance. Premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

 

Discussion to follow with film subject Dr. Amigo, Founder and Director of Amigo Family Counseling and Karen Lean, Board Member of Asperger/Autism Network
