ReelAbilities Film Festival Presents
Autistic Like Me: A Father’s Perspective

Event, Film Screening, Garden City Event, Performing Arts Series


Autistic Like Me examines the lives of fathers and male caregivers raising and caring for children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. Dispelling the archaic “big boys don’t cry” notion, the film chronicles the emotional struggle of a group of fathers as they open up to one another about the fear, disappointment and ultimately the acceptance of a very different parenting experience than they had envisioned. 

Featuring a special introduction by Charles Jones (the director and subject of the film) and a post-show discussion with Adelphi University faculty and staff.

This screening is part of the ReelAbilities: NY Disabilities Film Festival.

Initiated in NY in 2007, the festival presents award winning films by and about people with disabilities in multiple locations throughout each hosting city. Post-screening discussions and other engaging programs bring together the community to explore, discuss, embrace, and celebrate the diversity of our shared human experience.  For more information on the Festival and all of the films screening throughout New York, visit ny.reelabilities.org.
