A Capital Public Radio Multimedia Documentary
SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Capital Public Radio launches its multimedia documentary series The View From Here with a personal, in-depth look inside the lives of adults with Autism. The View From Here: Autism Grows Up, is available online at www.capradio.org.
In the 1990s autism rates around the US began to rise. Each year since then thousands of California children have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders. Now, these children are "aging out" of school-based special education programs. Each of them enters adulthood with a unique combination of social, behavioral and communication deficits that promises an unusually challenging life. The View From Here: Autism Grows Up follows four adults in the Sacramento region with autism who are aiming for a life of choice and opportunity.
"Through the stories of these people and their families, I've come to appreciate the possibility that although our brains might function differently, we share many of the same hopes and dreams," says The View From Here Senior Producer Catherine Stifter.
"We've been building our documentary unit over the last year and a half, so it's exciting to officially launch The View From Here as a full-fledged series with this program," says Joe Barr, Capital Public Radio's Director of News and Information.
The View From Here multimedia documentary seriesis made possible in part by funding from The California Endowment, the California HealthCare Foundation and Sierra Health Foundation.
