Entertainment paralegal with autistic son makes film

Documentaries focus on insiders' view of autism [registration req'd], including a film made by a paralegal:

"When Taylor Cross was 14, he told his mother he wanted to earn money to pay for the Christmas gifts they planned to give a needy family.

"Keri Bowers was moved by her son's display of empathy. Cross was diagnosed with high-functioning autism at age 6 and struggles with social skills. Bowers suggested household chores he could do to earn the money.

"No way, he said. He wanted to make a movie and sell it.

"No way, she said. As a paralegal in the entertainment industry in California, she feared the venture would flop.

"In the end, the mother and son collaborated on Normal People Scare Me, a documentary on people with autism. Its success led to a second documentary, Sandwich Kids, for siblings of people with disabilities."
