What is the standard that identifies one person as whole and capable and another as disabled and broken?
Neurotypical, a film about autism from the perspective of autistics, parallels the lives of three individuals on the autism spectrum, each facing pivotal stages of growth. Violet, 3 years old, is absorbing the sensory world and learning ways to navigate through it; Nicholas, a teenager, is coming to terms with his diagnosis and his identity; and Paula, newly diagnosed, balances her autism advocacy work with the demands of homeschooling her son and sorting out a disintegrating marriage.
By exploring the behavioral and perceptual differences that autistics express, differences that tend to separate them from a society that both sets the standard and attempts to have them meet it, the definition of ‘normal’ comes into question. Neurotypical ultimately broadens the concept of what it means to be human.
