Iowa Public Television announced the launch of its newest online series, The Life Autistic. The series will premiere Monday, November 18 on, Facebook and YouTube.

The Life Autistic will explore the challenges and successes of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder at different stages in life and ranges on the spectrum. Featuring various age groups ranging from the very young to the elderly, the series will include personal profiles and interviews exploring topics relevant to each age group.

“Working on The Life Autistic series has been a profound experience. People with autism and members of their families have graciously shared their deepest struggles and greatest successes in order to raise awareness and acceptance for those with disabilities,” said series producer/director Judy Blank. “I find it both humbling and inspirational that every person we were privileged to meet works tirelessly for gains towards increased quality of life and independence for those with autism.”    

The Life Autistic will include an estimated 12 episodes. After the November 18 premiere, new episodes will be released bi-weekly on Mondays through April 2020.
