Living with Autism

1 in 88 American children have been identified with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, according to the Centers for Disease Control. This bewildering condition presents enormous challenges to family life.  These portraits offer a glimpse of the isolation and intimate connections felt by the children and the people who love them, and the family dynamic that develops around their experiences.  

The families featured belong to the Brooklyn Autism Center, a school that provides 1:1 instruction for children, supports the families, and facilitates community awareness and interaction.
