Automatic for Autism Presents Free Movie Screening at Cine

Automatic for Autism will be presenting a free movie screening of 'How to Dance in Ohio' at Cine on April 24 at 5:30 p.m. This film features four young adults preparing for their spring formal under the care of their trusted psychologist, Dr. Emilio Amigo of Amigo Family Counseling, who has been providing clinical therapy for children, teens and adults with autism for more than 20 years. Through group therapy sessions, he empathetically counsels the clients on social behavior including how to show emotion, how to physically interact with others, and of course, how to dance. Approximately one in 68 children have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosis. All children with autism are different, but they all have deficits related to social interaction and social communication. ASD is also characterized by restricted, repetitive behaviors. Individuals with ASD benefit from early intervention and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). ABA services cost around $120 an hour and families often require several hours for meaningful change. The UGA Applied Behavior Analysis Support Clinic provides these services and by supporting Automatic for Autism you can help offset these costs.
